Roy Scheider Dies at 75

"You're going to need a bigger boat."

That line is quite possibly the most memorable movie quote of all time. The film, Jaws, managed to keep a lot of people including myself off of the beach for quite some time after viewing it. Actor Roy Scheider just had that leading man quality that very few possess. It was just a bit of brilliant casting.

Sadly on Sunday morning Scheider passed away at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences hospital in Little Rock a hospital spokesman told Variety. The hospital did not release his cause of death, but he had been diagnosed with myeloma in 2004 and subsequently underwent a bone marrow transplant.

Sheider had achieved many things in his life but he will always be remembered for his role as Chief Brody. He may have past on but he will live on in cinema foever.


RIP
Roy Scheider
November 10, 1932 - February 10, 2008
