Roy Scheider has passed away...


Recommended Posts

One of the only actors I have actually met in person (randomly, walking down the street in Orlando when he was filming Seaquest), this guy was absolutely one of my favorite performers. From The French Connection to Jaws to Seaquest DSV the guy was just an amazing actor.


He was 75.

When I read this earlier online, I actually got choked up. Jaws is my favorite movie of all time and was the reason I took up this writing game. RIP, Roy.

For some reason I started pounding my desk with my fists when I read it...


I spent a lot of summers back in my childhood anchored off of Martha's Vineyard with my grandfather (who was a commercial fisherman in New Bedford, MA) so I guess Jaws has just always been a special movie to me because the look and locations of that film remind me so much of those summers growing up.

That is a shame. He was a very unique talent. Seaquest was cool. Jaws, of course! But honestly, I remember him the most from Blue Thunder.

Something about that movie was just right for him!

The whole JAFO thing was great in that movie, but to quote a rather poignant line from that film, "....Catch ya later!" :tu
