Playwright/actor/director Sam Shepard. 

He won a Pulitzer Prize for drama and was nominated for an Oscar for playing Chuck Yeager in The Right Stuff.  Not many people can claim that exacta.

RIP. Not a fan of his brand of intense, hyperpersonal plays but he was a really committed theater guy and, unlike most-hated-NMicans Julia Roberts & Val Kilmer, he and Miss Lange did a good job of blending in & adding up when they moved out to Tesuque. Saw him around & @ parties a lot backinaday and he was always civil & funny.

I forgot about that little role and that's one of my favorite Scorcese films! He seemed like an actor that just liked to work. Always pretty reliable. I could watch him and see a flash of William Hurt in his acting.

John Hurt and John Heard have both died in 2017.

William Hurt should look both ways before crossing the street.

I liked his mental and verbal gymnastical monologues and dialogue.

Will be sorry missed.

One of the great stars of the greatest era of French film.  She wasn't as traditionally beautiful as Deneuve, Bardot or Dorleac but Moreau had a unique sensuality and that voice that set her apart.

June Foray died a few days ago

She was best known as the voice of Rocky from "Rocky & Bullwinkle", but she also voiced dozens of other characters, including the Russian spy Natasha (from Boris & Natasha), Tweety Bird's owner Granny, and Jokey Smurf.

Oscar-nominated screenwriter, and Blame it on Rio co-star Joe Bologna, aged 82.

Great as Sid Caesar-type in My Favorite Year & as Wilder's pal in Lady in Red and his Nichols&May-meets-Neil-Simon plays with his wife were a ticket the grownups used to enjoy when i was a kid. Marone, RIP right heah.

My favorite Christmas television tradition was not It's a Wonderful Life or the Grinch or Frosty or even the SNL cast iceskating @ Rockefeller Center, but the last Letterman Show before the holiday break each year when Paul Shafer would do his imitation of Cher singing O Holy Night on the ol Sonny&Cher Show, Jay Thomas would come out and throw footballs at the meatball atop the Late Show Xmas tree and tell his Lone Ranger story and Darlene Love would wrap it up w her astonishing "Christmas Baby Please Come Home". RIP, citizen.

Word reaches me that THE nerd of music, John Abercrombie, died last week. Y'all for whom music began with the Pixies or whatever and are happy with "this is who i am and that's enough" music, take some time and listen to a guy who spent 60 years thrilled for each opportunity to NEVER get it exactly right. RIP, servant of the spheres.

Tobe Hooper on 8/26 - 74 years old ... the absolute genius behind "Texas Chainsaw Massacre"

i've seen it dozens of times, but, man, seeing Pam dropped on that meat hook still sends a chill! 

gotdamn was that such a terrifying and well crafted flick.  nothing else compares.  it is the gold standard, imo :thumbup:

im'ma go stop off for some BBQ in tribute "yeah, gimme a toe or two up in that ... to go"

gave me a slasher flick idea - the sibling of a girl who was murdered by a fan of slasher flicks goes mad with grief and starts seeking out the killer's favorite slasher directors. dundundunDUUUUH!

Wow, didn't even hear about this. I listened to his radio show a few times on Sirius over the past few years and he was really funny. Loved the Letterman Christmas tree bit every year. I thought he was a bit younger. RIP :banned:

Bionic man and woman were stalwarts of my youth.  They've been sadly forgotten, other than the awesome "bionic noise" thingy that lives on.

I'd love to watch a few episodes out of the moth balls.

Mine too. I used to pretend I was the bionic woman. Drove my fam nuts. They do bring these shows from time to time on the classic tv channels though it's usually late at night. Back in the 70's we saw all this bionic stuff as fiction but with medical advances, it's no long seen that way. Robotic arms, legs. Great prosthetics compared to what we had before. I love watching these old shows and seeing how far technology has come.

I recall playing as a kid, doing the "che-che-che-che-che-che-che-che" bionic sound as we role played #### in slow motion.  

Back in the days where you could wander around unsupervised until just past dusk without any parents getting arrested.

Haha! I made that sound too. I also gave myself a bionic eye- hehe. Once I outgrew that phase enter my bro with The Incredible Hulk. Now that drove us nuts. He'd food colour himself green and rip his shirts making that noise of his. Needless to say, mom was less than pleased..

I bet today's parents would rather have the good old days of pretend play than these days with social media and other problems technology brings.

Probably not the thread for this, but adjusted for inflation, how much would the six million dollar man cost today?

Didn't realize it myself until I saw the "re-release" of his ep on the Gilbert gottfried podcast in my queue today.  Never really got into his show, but enjoyed him as a guest on stern.

So, like 1% of the budget for some failed fighter planes. 

Pretty good bargain there. I'll order a few hundred.

Frank Vincent

http://www.tmz.com/2017/09/13/frank-vincent-dead-78/

 

Frank Vincent -- veteran actor known for his roles on "The Sopranos" and several Martin Scorsese films -- died in a New Jersey hospital Wednesday ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Vincent suffered a heart attack last week, and underwent open heart surgery Wednesday. He died during the surgery. 

Frank was one of the most recognizable character actors -- in the biz for 41 years -- known for his tough guy roles ... especially in mafia movies. Some of his most memorable include Billy Batts in "Goodfellas" and Phil Leotardo -- Tony's nemesis -- in "The Sopranos."
