Roy Scheider Dies at 75

11 02 2008

Sad news today, Roy Scheider who was most famous for his role as the police cheif in “Jaws”, died today. This comes from The AP by way of Google:

“Scheider died Sunday at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences hospital in Little Rock, hospital spokesman David Robinson said. The hospital did not release a cause of death.

However, hospital spokeswoman Leslie Taylor said Scheider had been treated for multiple myeloma at the hospital’s Myeloma Institute for Research and Therapy for the past two years.”

While he was most known for “Jaws”, when I think of Roy Scheider, I think of “All That Jazz” and “The French Connection”, both of which earned him Oscar nominations. “All That Jazz” is one of my favorite movies, and it is a bummer to see him go. Best wishes for his family.
