In 1969, Parks reprised his Wild Seed wandering hipster persona in the hit television series Then Came Bronson. His theme song for the series, Long Lonesome Highway, which composed and sang, became a chart-topping hit in the early seventies.
Frequently cited by longtime fan Tarantino as the world's greatest living actor, Parks' film credits include Larry Cohen's legendary scandal-mongering bio-pic The Private Files of J. Edgar Hoover (1977), The Evictors (1979), and The Hitman (1991), with Chuck Norris. He also co-starred in the David Lynch television series, Twin Peaks, and as a Western sheriff in the Quentin Tarantino/Robert Rodriguez vampire romp From Dusk Till Dawn (1996).
Parks will also appear, playing a different character, in Kill Bill (Vol. 2).
