Roy Scheider: 1932 - 2008
JAWS is one of my favourite films, Top 10 easily. Almost the perfect movie. Part of the charm of the classic falls to its lead, ROY SCHEIDER, who has sadly passed away. It was a grim start to the day when I awoke yesterday to hear the news and, even though I am not a huge fan of his work in general (having only seen a handful of his work), it's a testament to his role as Police Chief Martin Brody in the '75 blockbuster (some say the first of its kind) that makes his death that bit sadder. He even managed to make JAWS 2 watchable as he lent his warmth and humour to the role. Thankfully, he had the foresight to quit there with that franchise. Of course, he may well be remembered best for that line (which is often paraphrased for whatever occasion necessary):

"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
