I wish they would've used him more - what a great, savory nemesis for Cooper. Each second he's on screen was immediately ingrained in my memory for all eternity and it's always great to meet a fellow JR appreciator!
Long live Michael Parks. Ideally I'd have loved Renault to tangle with Windom Earle, and form a triumvirate with Leo. But Windom crept around in his pyjamas most of the time and JR left the screen early. But what a great villain, and a memorable performance.
The King is dead, long live the King, indeed! BTW, check out direct-to-DVD flick From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter (no, it definitely isn't as bad as it sounds!) if you haven't already - it contains one of the very best Parks performances hands down. Well worth any Parks' fan's (as well as any lover of weird cinema's) time!
