'Jaws' actor Roy Scheider dies

Bummer, I remember him from a lot of roles.
http://www.cnn.com/2008/SHOWBIZ/Movies/02/10/obit.scheider.ap/index.html
LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas (AP) -- Roy Scheider, the actor best known for his role as a police chief in the blockbuster movie "Jaws," has died. He was 75.

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.

Not only "Jaws" but "The French Connection" and "All That Jazz" among a host of others.

Yeah, he played Fosse in All That Jazz. Wasn't even a dancer.
I guess he was Hackman's sidekick in the French Connection?
Best cop movies ever, including the sequel.

I liked him in everything in I saw (and missed a lot of what he did), such as "Marathon Man", "2010", and "52 Pick-Up", in addition to those mentioned above.

The just played "2010" where Roy played Professor Haywood, the main guy who touched the monolith in 2001. He was a great actor and best remembered in Jaws as Chief Brody. Best chemistry ever on the screen of the crew onboard a vessel (Quint, the Chief of Police and Hooper).

"Hey Chiefy Put the Fire Out, Won't You"?

Of course, he uttered one of the most famous lines in movie history...

QUINT: Stop playing with yourself, Hooper. Full ahead, if you please.
BRODY: Full ahead. I can do full ahead. Why don't you come back here and chum some of this *****?
(Shark's head emerges from the bloody water, revealing the animal's size for the first time. Brody stumbles backwards into the cabin)
BRODY: We're going to need a bigger boat.

One of my all-time favorite movies.
