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.
You have here a tremendous performance pulled by Claude Akins; who - I just realize - I missed since the beginning of this TV show. Such old cops characters suit to him like a glove. He is here tough and poignant in the same time as this vet cop who has to struggle against his own demons, alcohol and relationship with his wife. One more typical line we already had in Dick Fleischer's THE NEW CENTURIONS also adapted from Joseph Wambaugh. I will never be tired of this TV series, the kind of show you don't see anymore. I don't think many of those episodes are available anymore. Such a shame. Claude Akins played in two other episodes of POLICE STORY, I hardly wait to see them.
