Terrific actor whose work will never be forgotten. Jaws is one of the greatest films ever made and Brody is among the most likeable characters to hit the big screen. Also thought Scheider was especially great in Blue Thunder, Romeo is Bleeding, The French Connection, and Naked Lunch. Rest in peace.
Yeah, one of the times when a remake really worked. Not better than the original, not worse. Just another great version of a riveting story.
I'd also like to mention his performance in the great The Seven-Ups. Pretty good French Connection knock off, with Scheider given the lead role. And a car chase that ranks up there among the best of the 70s.
I'm depressed. Jaws movie is one of West movies allowed to run in Czech Republic theatres from countries behind iron curtain in 80's. Roy Scheider fighting with shark will always represent one of these magic moments of tasting foreign terror in childhood. RIP, Mr. Scheider.
I'm gutted to hear this news.
Some lesser discussed Scheider films that I want to mention in fond memory:
The Fourth War
The Men's Club
...and Jaws 2
He was The Man. Nuff said.
I live near Scarecrow Video in Seattle and they've been showing Scheider films since the announcement. When I went in there they were showing the ending to Jaws 2, he was so bad ass.
"It's just Bluefish!!"
RIP, Very sad. I loved his part in The Punisher too.
Damn. No love for All That Jazz?
"All That Jizz" was fucking amazing.
