    I didn't see a thread for this anywhere allthough I find it surpriseing that no one has meantioned this. :concern: I was wondering if anyone knows whatever became of Gerry Parks the man who played Doc on the US/Canada Fraggle Rock? The last thing I heard about him was when he made a gust apperance in 2 episodes of ' The Shineing Time Station ' in 1995.

    Hmm...Nice question. I don't remember him on anything though. It would be nice to see what he went on to do.

    Since you're all over 17 so far, I'll suggest checking out Boondock Saints. Gerry plays a bartender suffering Tourette's Syndrome. It's a good performance and a terrific movie.

    I just read the script for that movie. :eek: Hard to imaging ' Doc ' being anything but warm and loving person this should be interesting. :cool:

    I remember there was an old Nickelodeon series called, Today's Special. Gerry made a guest appearance as a guy named Phil, who had a serious drinking problem. It was certainly different from his Doc character.

    Does anyone know how old Gerry is or have any recent pictures of him?

    Hi all Fraggle Rock fans,;)
    I checked www.imdb.com & all it says about Gerry Parkes is that he was born in Ireland.Doesn't say how old he is or if he'll be in the FR movie.

    While I absolutely hate The Boondock Saints (a discussion for another day), I enjoy watching it for the performances by Willem Dafoe, Billy Connolly, and, of course, Gerry Parkes... even if it is a small role.

    Billy Connolly, who was, of course, in Muppet Treasure Island!:) ;)
