• Michael Parks, the character actor whose 100+ credits ranged from the iconic (and short-lived) 1969 TV series "Then Came Bronson" to the two Kill Bill movies written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, has passed away at age 77.
- KC's View:
I had to mention this, for two reasons. First, "Then Came Bronson" makes my list of favorite one-season TV series ... it is like "Route 66" merged with Easy Rider, and I've often thought of it on my summer cross-country drives. Plus, Parks sang the theme song for the series, "Long Lonesome Highway," which actually made the Billboard charts ... and which I've long had in my iTunes library.
