RIP Sam Shepard

Playwright and actor Sam Shepard has died, according to family spokesperson Chris Boneau. He was 73. Shepard died at his home last week in Kentucky after complications from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, Boneau said.

Shepard, whose work spans more than five decades, was nominated for an Oscar in 1983 for his role in "The Right Stuff." He also had a very successful career offscreen.

He won a Pulitzer Prize for drama in 1979 for his play "Buried Child," one of 40 he wrote over the years.

An Illinois native, he began his acting career in the early 1960s working off-Broadway, then moving to Broadway and the big screen in the 1970s and 1980s. Two other notable plays by him are 1980's "True West" and 1983's "Fool for Love."

On the silver screen and TV, Shepard followed up "The Right Stuff" with "Steel Magnolias" in 1989, "Dash and Lilly" in 1999 (for which he earned an Emmy nod) and "Black Hawk Down" in 2001, among a slew of other projects.

More recently, he starred in Netflix's "Bloodline" in 2015 and was in this year's "Never Here," which hit movie theaters in June.
