FIN Scheider, Jaws

Roy Scheider, the leathery, permanently beciggied star of Jaws and probably some other movies has died. Actually, he was a prolific, if not understated, actor, playing magnificently in roles alongside both sharks and helicopters in films such as Blue Thunder, The French Connection, Klute, 2001: A Space Odyssey, All that Jazz, and more. He was also the first choice for DeNiro‘s role in The Deer Hunter and Stallone‘s role in Rambo. Expect a day full of puns on his most famous line of dialogue, “You’re gonna need a bigger boat.” [AP via Breitbart]
