The Leading Man (1996)
Sam Shepard famously hated endings. As a playwright, he felt "the temptation towards resolution, towards wrapping up the package, seems to me a terrible trap."
He got that right. So Shepard leaves us to deal with his ending, a death at 73 at his home in Kentucky, surrounded by family. Als, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, was the culprit. The obits pay

It’s not really a spoiler if it’s all in the title. There’s to be only sadness at the end of this funny, bittersweet story. Norman sports white Apple headphones hanging from his ears as he makes phone call after phone call, bending the truths of his friendships and influences to whoever will listen. He’s got a nephew (Michael Sheen) who appeases him and a slew of Jewish men who wield power and

Terrorist plots, unexpected betrayals and executions have made for a plethora of memorable goodbyes on the Showtime series.
So before we reunite with Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) for Sunday's season 5 premiere, take a look back at all of Homeland's bombshell farewells that left us astonished.
How he died: After regrouping following their botched suicide bomb attack in the season 1 finale, Nicholas Brody (Damien Lewis) and fellow former Marine Tom Walker (Chris Chalk) had mastermind Abu Nazir (Navid Negahban) on the phone. Nazir ordered Brody to shoot Walker,
They say that clothes make the man. They also make the man in the movie and, sometimes, even make the movie itself live on in the annals of classic filmdom. With that in mind, here is a list (in no particular order) of ten gents and the characters they played who changed our sartorial habits forever.
1. Michael Douglas/Gordon Gecko—Wall Street
Arguably the movie that set the style for second half of the 1980s, Oliver Stone’s Wall Street featured Michael Douglas’ Oscar-winning turn as corporate raider Gordon Gecko, whose ruthlessness in the boardroom was only matched by his sense of style. Douglas is all clean lines in his pinstripe suits, suspenders and slicked-back hair, creating an iconic look that screamed “power” and “go fuck yourself” simultaneously.
2. Malcolm McDowell/Alex—A Clockwork Orange
Stanley Kubrick’s dystopian sci-fi allegory is one of cinema’s great dark satires,
"Boyhood," my favorite film of 2014, received the Best Film and Director (Richard Linklater) prizes while "Birdman" won the Best Screenplay Original award and "Gone Girl" took home the Best Screenplay Adapted award.
I love that the Awfj honored the fantastic Tilda Swinton for her role in "Snowpiercer," a performance that is all but forgotten this awards season.
I also love the Special Mention Awards with categories like Best Depiction Of Nudity, Sexuality, or Seduction, and Actress Most In Need of a New Agent. Are you listening Cameron Diaz?

The Doctor has had a variety of friends, of all shapes and species, joining him in his adventures across time and space but the idea of an archetypal companion still exists. They are someone from the present day, someone who is young and someone who is a woman. Though it must be said that the majority of the Tardis’ tenants fit this bill, many don’t. Several are from different periods of history, some aren’t particularly young and, yes, some of them aren’t even women.
When Doctor Who returns with The Magician’s Apprentice later this year it’s thought the Doctor might gain a new companion. Rather than having another young woman from the 21st century (after all, Clara’s still around), the new companion could well be male. If so, it’s a move that would bring a new dynamic to the Tardis team. The leading man
The First Stage: Holding Your Breath
So many miracles had to happen for us to pull off this show, because it really wasn’t something there was a template for. We knew that these characters, Gortimer and Mel and Ranger, were cut from a different cloth than a lot of the characters on kids TV right now. And it was scary because we couldn’t have a show without believable actors. But I had no idea if anybody was even out there who could pull it off. So I held my breath and we started the casting process.
