I know this sounds crazy, and I know it may take awhile for any of you to see it, but I honestly think Ty would make a great Parker. He’s got the look, he’s got the build, he’s got the hands, but most importantly, he has a quality in Parker I’ve never seen captured on screen correctly. He’s got silliness. Parker isn’t silly, but he needs to act it when he’s in disguise. He needs that Clark Kent ability to fool everyone into thinking he’s someone he’s clearly not. Good example of this is FlashFire and all the disguises he uses there.

RIchard Stark’s The Hunter by Darwyn Cooke
Caught this courtesy of Watch TCM - a real gem. George Pelecanos guest hosted the other night & this was one of his picks. Worth seeking out - great performances, great 70’s vibe throughout.
The Hunter (1962) & Point Blank (1967)
The Jugger (1965) & Made in the U.S.A. (1966)
