Roy Scheider, star of Jaws and The French Connection, as well as TV show SeaQuest DSV and much more, has died at the age of 75. He's a cult favourite and will be rather missed.

That's one bad hat, Harry.

They're gonna need a bigger boat.

It's sad when people die, but at least he didn't go young and had a good run at life.

Wow that's sad. I actually was just watching some of Jaws in Communications class today and was reminded of how great it is. Strange that we would watch clips of it today...

We're gonna need a bigger obit.


My favourite performance of his was Frank the pimp in Klute. Awesome.
