Roy Scheider
February 10, 2008

Scheider's rangy figure, gaunt
face, and emotional openness
made him appealing in everyman
roles, most famously as the
agonized police chief of "Jaws." In
his first major film, "Klute," he
played a threatening pimp to Jane
Fonda's call girl, and he earned his
first of two Oscar nominations as
Gene Hackman's police detective
partner in "French Connection."
