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.
He Wasn't Ethical But You Couldn't Say They Didn't Deserve It
Michael J. Pollard (a very strange person; remember him in "Bonnie and Clyde") plays a small town undertaker. He is quite eccentric and people are generally mean to him. He gets his revenge on them by preparing their bodies in ways that reflect their evil (putting ink in the veins of a racist, for example). He seems to have some part in how they met their deaths, but we don't know about the specifics (except for a man that is shot by a jealous husband after Pollard calls the husband). Well, we know things are probably going to go sour at some point. He is having so much fun doing his thing when a man who has had a history of seizures and near fatal attacks revives on the slab. This is not good, of course. This is the concluding episode of this series and it is certainly unsettling.
