FIGHTERS. Herschel Walker doesn't tap out: At 50, the Heisman Trophy winner enters the world of mixed martial arts, battling men half his age (Playboy, December 2011) -- The casualty of war: The Marine Corps saved Chris Leon's life and took him to his death--all before he turned 21 (Los Angeles, June 2007) -- The method and the madness of Hubie Brown: The well-traveled coach berates, cajoles, and wills the Atlanta Hawks to victory (The Atlanta Journal & Constitution Magazine, December 9, 1979) -- Hollywood fixer: Aaron Cohen learned how to kill in the Israeli Special Services, which is why he's Hollywood's most sought after security consultant (Playboy, December 2010) -- The real Jake: Jake Jacoby began covering the LAPD in the 1930s. Still on the beat fifty years later, he broke the Night Stalker case. Unlike most journalists, he believes his job is to fight crime. (GQ, May 1986) -- CREATORS. Robert Penn Warren finds his place to come to: The three-time Pulitzer winner looks back (The Atlanta Journal & Constitution Magazine, September 16, 1979) -- Portman's complaint: John Portman built modern Atlanta and changed the face of urban America by bucking the architectural establishment.

But he's fearless onscreen (Premiere, March 1989) -- A character actor reaches cult status: Harry Dean Stanton has died more often on camera than anyone else in the film business (the New York Times Magazine, November 16, 1987) -- G-days: After marrying into English nobility, cocksure Australian Bryan Brown came to Hollywood (GQ, April 1990) -- DESPERADOES. Fallen angel: Bo Belinsky pitched California's first major league no hitter. He dated beautiful movie stars. He died alone, a cocaine addict (Los Angeles, June 2005) -- A sinner's second chance: Gregg Allman lost his brother Duane to a motorcycle wreck. He married Cher and went cold turkey from heroin.
