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.
Newlyweds Walt and Frieda Hollis arrive at their mountain cabin and find seriously injured felon Mickey Demarest unconscious on the floor. While Walt hikes to the nearest ranger station for help, Demarest revives and escapes after overpowering Frieda. Ranger Ben Seward radios the Highway Patrol and Dan Mathews dispatches the helicopter after he recognizes Demarest's description and realizes that he could provide information concerning recent pharmacy robberies. Walt is shot when he confronts the limping Demarest, but receives the necessary first aid at the ranger station. Despite his injuries, Demarest is surprisingly resilient and he leads Dan on a difficult chase in the treacherous terrain. A final confrontation ensues when the increasingly desperate Demarest falls from a short ledge and refuses to believe Dan when he tells Demarest that he is only wanted for robbery and not for murder.

The Highway Patrol's activities frequently lead them far from the highways. Sometimes a search for a criminal takes the Patrol to the remote, isolated, inaccessible areas like Mount Vista. But to unsuspecting Walt and Frieda Hollis, Mount Vista was merely an ideal spot for camping and deer hunting.

Newlyweds arrive at their isolated cabin and find a seriously injured man in it. The husband decides to walk to the nearest ranger station and leaves his wife, Frieda, with his rifle to watch the man (what?!?). The man, convicted felon Mickey Demarest, revives and quickly manages to get the rifle from Frieda and ties her up. Walt catches up with Demarest and is shot soon after Frieda frees herself. Mathews wants very much to find Demarest because he thinks Demarest can provide valuable information about some robberies. Using a helicopter, he spots Demarest. Given how injured Demarest was suppose to be, he limps along at a pretty good pace. This was just an average episode with no particularly memorable characters or interesting storyline.
