Parks first gained recognition in the role of Adam in John Huston's The Bible: In the Beginning (1966) and as the star of the television series Then Came Bronson from 1969-1970. He also sang the theme song for the show, "Long Lonesome Highway," which became a Top 40 hit in 1970. Albums he recorded under MGM include Closing The Gap (1969), Long Lonesome Highway (1970), and Blue. He also had various 45 rpm records of songs included on these albums. Other early roles included an appearance in two NBC series, the legal drama Sam Benedict in the role of Larry Wilcox in the 1962 episode entitled "Too Many Strangers" and the medical drama The Eleventh Hour, in the role of Mark Reynolds in the 1963 segment "Pressure Breakdown". He also appeared in The China Lake Murders and Stranger by Night, having portrayed a police officer in both.
He subsequently played Philip Colby during the second season (1986-1987) of Dynasty spin-off series The Colbys. He also played Jean Renault, on Twin Peaks.
