Roy Scheider, known best for his role as Chief Martin Brody in the 1975 hit movie Jaws, passed away last Sunday. Scheider had been battling multiple myeloma and blood cancer for several years at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences hospital in Little Rock, Arkansas. He was 75 years old.

Bob ‘The Bitch’:
Everyday after school when I was about 5 or 6 years old I used to sneak off into basement and watch Jaws. I was terrified and mystified by the movie. But I always remember relating to Chief Brody’s character the most. He was a hero of mine then and now.

Coincidentally, I think I just figured out why I’ve had psychological problems as an adult. It all stemmed from Jaws. But it was worth it.
RIP Roy. And by god, “Smile you son of a bitch!!!”
