Roy Scheider dies from infection, age 75

Roy Scheider - Wikipedia
November 10, 1932 – February 10, 2008

I remember him as Dr. Heywood in 2010: The Year we make Contact, which has always been an inspiration to me. Other movies that stand out are The French Connection, Jaws and Naked Lunch. Apparently he was also supposed to star as Rambo in First Blood and Michael in Deer Hunter.

  1. I’ll remember him as that guy who blew open a giant shark, then went to space with alot of russians and made contact with the monolith-people. RIP.
