LIAM NEESON / PIERCE BRONSAN - AD-MEN

NEW YORK (AP) -- So, who's the best "pitcher" out there these days? A baseball fan might say it's Matt Harvey or Max Scherzer. But for ad execs, the best pitcher -- is actor Liam Neeson. The Nielsen company has taken a look at celebrities who did commercials during the first three months of the year -- and using some fancy calculations, determined who had the biggest affect on consumers. And by that measure, Neeson wins. Pierce Bronsan had the same score Neeson did, but Neeson is seen as having more clout in getting products sold. Other celebs who scored high included Matthew McConaughey, Jeff Bridges, Jennifer Garner, Natalie Portman, Sofia Vergara, Jim Parsons, Dennis Haysbert and J.K. Simmons.

SAM SHEPARD - ARREST

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) -- Actor Sam Shepard is facing a DUI case in New Mexico. He was arrested Memorial Day on suspicion of drunken driving. Santa Fe police say they were called after security at a restaurant complained about a driver trying to leave the parking lot -- but couldn't because his pickup truck's emergency brake was engaged. Police say an officer smelled alcohol on Shepard's breath and the actor said he had some tequila. He declined to take a breath test but did take -- and fail -- a field sobriety test.

KELLY RUTHERFORD - CUSTODY CASE

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A judge in Los Angeles has stepped into a custody dispute involving actress Kelly Rutherford and her ex-husband. The judge has ordered Rutherford's ex to return their two kids to the actress. Rutherford went to court because her ex had sought to change the citizenship of the children, an 8-year-old boy and 6-year-old girl. The judge has ordered the ex to bring the children from to the U.S. from Monaco, pending a court hearing next month. Rutherford was in "Gossip Girl" and "Melrose Place."

BOB BARKER - RETIREMENT

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- You know how some people retire -- then go on blathering about their old job as though they missed it so much? Bob Barker isn't one of those people. He says he considers himself "a complete success at retirement" -- in that he has "never regretted it." He says the key to doing that is knowing when to leave -- not too soon and not too late. Barker says the one thing he misses about hosting "The Price Is Right" is the money. As far his time now, he says he uses it doing more of what he used to while he had a job: working on behalf of animals.

Bob Barker says there's a question he's often asked now that he's retired.
