Roy Scheider, the Reason You Don’t Surf, Dead at 75

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]
