DER US-AMERIKANISCHE FILMSCHAUSPIELER MICHAEL PARKS IST GESTORBEN

10.05.2017 Der am 24. April 1940 in Corona (Kalifornien) geborene US-amerikanische Schauspieler, Sänger und Filmproduzent Michael Parks (Bild) ist am 9. Mai 2017 in Los Angeles gestorben.

While Parks showed his range in small parts throughout the '70s and '80s, he never became the leading man some may have expected him to be. But his profile was boosted considerably in the 1990s when he was cast as French-Canadian gunrunner Jean Renault in David Lynch's TV series "Twin Peaks," which he followed a few years later with a role as a Texas Ranger in Rodriguez' vampire action film "From Dusk Till Dawn."

Tarantino, who co-starred in that film, became enamored with Parks and went on to cast him in two different roles in his films "Kill Bill Vol. 1" and "Kill Bill Vol. 2" as well as in "Django Unchained."

During his busy Hollywood career, Parks appeared in movies by auteur directors like Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez and Kevin Smith, who paid tribute to the veteran actor on Wednesday via Instagram.

"Michael was, and will likely forever remain, the best actor I've ever known. I wrote both #RedState and @tuskthemovie FOR Parks, I loved his acting so much," Smith wrote. "He was, hands-down, the most incredible thespian I ever had the pleasure to watch perform. And Parks brought out the absolute best in me every time he got near my set."

RIP Michael Parks: Hollywood's most underrated actor?

Director Robert Rodriguez, who cast him in From Dusk Till Dawn, said in 2011: "He was always considered to be the actor who should replace James Dean when James Dean passed, and his naturalism was just amazing to watch."

Responding to the news of Parks's death, Rodriguez wrote on Twitter: "A heartfelt farewell to the one and only Michael Parks. A very kind man and a true legend."

In David Lynchs Kultserie «Twin Peaks» mimte er den Drogendealer Jean Renault. Die Regisseure Robert Rodriguez und Quentin Tarantino holten ihn für «From Dusk Till Dawn», «Kill Bill», «Grindhouse» und «Django Unchained» vor die Kamera. Zuletzt war er an der Seite von Mel Gibson im französischen Thriller «Blood Father» (2016) zu sehen.
