Biography

Actor Michael Parks was a relatively obscure but intriguing talent who might have been forgotten following prime time turns in "Then Came Bronson" (ABC, 1969-70) and "The Colbys" (ABC, 1985-87) had he not been "unearthed" by director Quentin Tarantino in the 1990s. Straddling an awkward era between edgy method actors of the 1950s and anti-establishment icons of the 1960s, Parks had difficulty finding roles that showcased his unique, charismatic talent and, combined with his disinterest in Hollywood positioning, meant he was often relegated to B-movies. Beginning in the 1990s, he enjoyed a string of more artistic endeavors in projects like "Twin Peaks" (ABC, 1990-91) and "Kill Bill" (2003).
