He was one of the most realistic actors.....


Didn't know he passed on until I saw this thread. Couldn't get much better than the scene in JAWS where he was sitting at the table with his kid, and the kid was immitating him. Strangely sexy, that guy was, especially in JAWS. So believable as a husband/sheriff looking out for him and his. And all the while hoping to find a meaning to his actions. ALL THAT JAZZ was great too..."It's SHOWTIME".

Left a mark on me, he did. Hope his family understands he was a GREAT ACTORr, if nothing else in the "Hollywood World".

Few performances can match his realism in JAWS, or any of the other roles he played really.

RIP Roy!

I Don't Believe it!

This is a shock to me! I don't have TV or cable and seldom read the newspaper (no excuses. I'm bad) I really liked Roy Scheider in The French Connection and The Seven Ups. He was a very physically fit man, even in his dotage. He also had a wonderfully interesting face. I may have to watch Philip D'Antoni's movies again.
Interesting, if true. And interesting anyway.
