Top 10 Best Cult Actors

We salute the lesser known heroes of cinema

Michael Parks

Gruff-voiced Parks is something of a muse to cult directors Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino. He plays the recurring character of  Texas ranger Sheriff McGraw, who appears in six of their films, though he is worth a look alone for his second role as the terrifyingly charismatic, Esteban Viaho, in Kill Bill 2.

Watch this! From Dusk till Dawn, Twin Peaks, Kill Bill, Red State

Trivia: Parks is a successful singer songwriter who wrote the soundtrack to the 1960’s hit series “Then Came Bronson”.

Sid Haig

With a career spanning more than four decades, Sid Haig started his career with exploitation directors, Roger Corman and Jack Hill, before becoming a symbol of the trash cinema scene and has played bad guys ever since. Championed by horror director, Rob Zombie, he has more recently scared the pants off fans as the deranged hillbilly psychopath clown, Captain Spaulding in the House of a 1000 Corpses.

Trivia: Haig turned down the role of Marcellus Wallace in Pulp Fiction.
