Five Sentence Tribute: Roy Scheider

Roy Scheider was nominated for an oscar twice, amazing work in fantastic films:  (1) Best Supporting Actor for THE FRENCH CONNECTION (1971); (2) Best Leading Actor for ALL THAT JAZZ (1979).  He was terrific in MARATHON MAN and, if you've never seen that film, go rent it today!  When I was a kid I remember loving him in everything and I even rode my 10-speed bike to the theater to see BLUE THUNDER in 1983.    But, let's face it, if the man only gave us Police Chief Martin Brody in JAWS, he'd still be a legend. I truly enjoyed this man's acting.

One of the greatest lines in a film ever... "you're gonna need a bigger boat."
