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.
This episode, the first I watch for this TV show, is actually a war drama. Four convicts are sent behind enemy lines, in Germany, during WW2, for a mysterious mission. Four criminals as "candidates" for a kind of suicide mission. One of them is a notorious safe cracker. The mission may change the course of war. It sounds familiar, I know. We have nothing exceptional here, but watch out for Peter Falk, Simon Oakland and Susan Strasberg.
Surprisingly, I found the actor's performances rather good for this kind of TV stuff, good directing indeed. Not a corny material, on the contrary.
Directed by David Lowell Rich, one famous TV series maker
