Walsh sang the cheeky assessment of rock and roll excess with a grin on his face, punctuating a line like, "I lock the doors in case I'm attacked," with a smile. With Batiste and Stay Human as his back-up band, Walsh was free to run wild on guitar, literally scampering across The Late Show stage during the song's extended solo before trading riffs with a blazing saxophone. »
Sam Shepard was a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright whose contributions to the theater world spanned decades; by the time he started acting in movies, his career had already taken off. As such, even as he landed an Oscar nomination for “The Right Stuff” and continued to be a regular presence in front of the camera, the multi-talented writer-performer remained primarily associated with the stage. Nevertheless, Shepard remained a major figure in American cinema for 40 years in more ways that one: It’s his tender screenplay that makes Wim Wenders’ “Paris, Texas” such an emotional powerhouse, and he even directed two features, but it’s Shepard’s acting credits speak to his astonishing range — and the way he continued to evolve his skills as the decades wore on. Here are five standouts from a career so rich with talent that we can only begin to explore it with this limited sampling (sorry, »

Conservative news channel Newsmax TV is getting a distribution boost by returning to DirecTV’s channel lineup as of today.
As part of the deal with DirecTV parent At&T, Newsmax is also being added to At&T’s U-verse platform for the first time. Together the deal brings Newsmax about 25 million subscribers, 21 million of them from DirecTV. At&T’s U-verse platform has been shrinking since the telco giant acquired DirecTV in 2016 and has sought to migrate U-verse subscribers to its larger satellite service.
Newsmax is the most prominent of a handful of conservative news and commentary outlets that have been gaining traction in recent years. Many in the cable news market see an opening for a right-leaning outlet now that Fox News has faced such upheaval, including the loss of marquee anchor Bill O’Reilly. Newsmax has frequently been mentioned as a possible new home for O’Reilly, who »

On Wednesday, Marvel star Chris Evans publicly called out former Representative Joe Walsh of Illinois for mocking Kimmel’s emotional monologue in which the late-night host opened up about his newborn son’s battle with a congenital heart disease and defended the Affordable Care Act.
A day after Walsh tweeted that Kimmel’s “sad story doesn’t obligate me or anybody else to pay for somebody else’s health care,” Evans blasted the remark as “beyond misplaced.”

There are probably, hopefully few people who watched Jimmy Kimmel break down earlier this week while talking about how his infant son had to undergo heart surgery just a day after being born, and thought “Clean up your own mess.” But former Congressman and current radio host Joe Walsh was one of them, admonishing the new dad on Twitter for trying to guilt him into having any human decency. It’s not going to work, Kimmel:
Sorry Jimmy Kimmel: your sad story doesn’t obligate me or anybody else to pay for somebody else’s health care.

A few thousand applauded Walsh for lashing out at a worried dad, but many others took him to task for his own parental failings, let’s say. Kimmel also found a staunch advocate in Chris Evans. The actor, who’s grown increasingly political since donning the stars ...
