Acclaimed actor, playwright and director Sam Shepard has passed away due to complications from ALS. While probably best known for his role as Chuck Yeager in The Right Stuff, Shepard was a talented playwright who won a Pulitzer Prize for his play "Buried Child" and was nominated for two others. He also won 10 Obie (Off-Broadway) Awards, winning every one he was nominated for and he was companion to Jessica Lange for 27 years, producing two children and five film projects together. 

Which of Shepard's most well-known roles will you remember him for?

Jen,

Did you just make your list private? I was looking at it a few minutes ago and now I'm getting a 404 (page not found) error.

I went from a character list to a photo list so I could include Paris, Texas. Here's the address - http://www.imdb.com/list/ls020551691 - could you please correct the initial post?

Test pilots are a special breed. I had the pleasure of working with a former test pilot when I was a young engineer. He knew Chuck Yeager personally.

The farmer in Days of Heaven, although I looove his plays, as well as screenplays like Paris, Texas. Of course I loved seeing him on screen, too, but, for several reasons, including that it probably won't get nearly as many votes as it should, I'll vote his writing. I'm glad you made a poll for/about him: I was going to but really didn't have the time but his death is a huge loss.
