Michael Parks

Parks

I was sad to hear that veteran character actor Michael Parks had passed away. Most people my age remember him from the opening scene in 'From Dusk Till Dawn,' but I first saw Parks in a 1987 TV movie called 'Stamp of a Killer' starring Judith Light and Jimmy Smits. I don't remember much about the movie other than Parks' scary performance as a menacing killer.

Let me put it this way, as a kid, before I went to sleep my mom had to make sure Michael Parks wasn't hiding under my bed. He certainly left an impression on me.

And everything of his that I saw showed a true performer. He was always amazing. I don't check under the bed for him anymore, but I do check my DVD collection to remember his stellar body of work. RIP Michael Parks.
