Roy Richard Scheider of Jaws fame dead at 75


Roy Scheider passed away in Arkansas on February 10, 2008.  The news rocketed up to "volcanic" status on Google Trends.  He is best known for his role as Amity Police Chief Martin Brody in Jaws.  He also played Captain Nathan Bridger in SeaQuest DSV.

Of course, the fact that he is most famous for his role in Jaws is remarkable.  The movie forever changed the way we look at the ocean and the beach, for better or worse — probably worse for all the sharks out there that we freak out about and kill.
