Character actor Michael Shannon has been nominated for his second Oscar for his role in the 2016 thriller Nocturnal Animals. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some of the other characters he's played in the past.
Grey Beaver is reluctantly trades his loyal wolf-dog, White Fang, in exchange for gold. The dog's new owner is an evil man who cages and torments White Fang so as to transform him into a hateful fighting dog.
Strongheart was the first major German Shepherd movie star in silent cinema, beating out Rin Tin Tin by a few years. However, the enormous output by Rinty, along with an early death of Strongheart (due to an accident during filming), has made this Shepherd movie star mostly forgotten. However, the strength of his star power can be seen in the movie's lobby card. Strongheart is given billing over the movie's title. In fact, he is the only cast member to receive billing on the card!
