The Jaws (and Jaws II) star passed away today at the age of 75 in Little Rock, Arkansas, losing his battle with cancer. I just heard about it on the late night news.  Bluesad

RIP, Roy.  Always a favorite.  From JAWS to BLUE THUNDER and points between, an entertaining actor is some good films...

Very sad news indeed.   Bluesad

An absolute favorite of mine...sweetly personal as so many people seemed to have no awareness of him outside of JAWS(and maybe SEAQUEST).  Right out of Orange, New Jersey and you could tell.

Jesus....THE SEVEN-UPS, BLUE THUNDER, 52-PICKUP, Eric Red's criminally underappreciated COHEN AND TATE, THE FOURTH WAR, NAKED LUNCH....

...and my ultimate Scheider film, SORCERER.

That's a bummer.  I always enjoyed his work immensely, from Jaws to Blue Thunder to 2010.  He will be missed.

He should have stuffed a compressed air cannister in cancer's mouth and said "Smile, you son of a b!tch!" before shooting the can.  It's a sad day, however.  RIP Roy...

A fine actor.  I rented some movies I knew would be awful just to see him in them, and he never disappointed.  RIP.

This is horrible. I've only seen Roy in a couple of movies but I thought he was a terrific actor and it's a shame he's gone.  Bluesad

R.I.P.. We've lost another great talent and one who certainly appeared in plenty of sci-fi, action and horror roles. One of those great stars who could elevate a bad movie or TV show somewhat by his performance.
