Roy Scheider, R.I.P.

Roy Scheider, the actor who played Dr. Benway in the film adaptation of Naked Lunch, died today. He was 75. Here are my favorite Roy Scheider performances, in no particular order:
  • Marathon Man
  • All That Jazz
  • Jaws
  • 52 Pick-up
  • The French Connection

Add the titles to your Netflix queue if you haven't seen them. Not a dud in the bunch if you ask me. Rent Blue Thunder and 2010 for extra, boffo, box-office credit.
