Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and actor Sam Shepard, died at his Kentucky home Thursday, Fox News learned Monday. He was 73.

A family spokesperson told us the Oscar-nominated actor and celebrated author whose plays chronicled the explosive fault lines of family and masculinity in the American West, died from complications related to Lou Gehrig's disease, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.


So another good Actor is gone.

May he RIP.

He played Chuck Yeager. I probably recognized him from a few other films. Looks like he stayed busy to the end.
