1Often played agonized authority figures (i.e. Detective Buddy "Cloudy" Russo in The French Connection (1971) and Chief Martin Brody in Jaws (1975) and Jaws 2 (1978))

4Consistently suntan skin
5Angular rugged face
1The Theater lies like the truth. That's Harold Clurman's phrase. The Theater lies because it expands the truth. And by expanding and dramatizing the truth, it makes it more than just the facts. That's what writers do. That's what actors do. That's what I do.
2I've been fortunate to do what I consider three landmark films. The French Connection (1971) spawned a whole era of the relationship between two policemen, based on an enormous amount of truth about working on the job. Jaws (1975) was the first big, blockbuster outdoor-adventure film. And certainly All That Jazz (1979) is not like any old MGM musical. Each one of these films is unique, and I consider myself fortunate to be associated with them.
3[on how his career was affected by The French Connection (1971)] I got inundated with cop scripts after that. It was the same role over and over, and every cop movie was a cheap imitation. I'd get this script and every one had a chase sequence, every scene was either set in a garage or a vacant lot or a warehouse with everybody getting gunned down.
4[on shooting the troubled Sheila Levine Is Dead and Living in New York (1975)] The hardest thing about that one was working with Jeannie Berlin. You don't do a picture with that one unless you've got a personal stake in it. She's very disturbed, and it was hard for the director.
5[on working with Jane Fonda in the mystery thriller Klute (1971)] I liked her passion. And her professionalism. You know, Jane worked for years as a silly ingénue on the stage in New York and, I mean, she was laughable at first. But she stayed with it and, slowly, carefully, learned her craft.
6[on Bob Fosse] Fosse, I think, came to a high point in his life, with an Oscar, a Tony and an Emmy, and asked himself, "Do they think I'm really that good? They don't know I'm really a sham, a hoax, a phony, a lousy human being, not much of a friend to anybody and a flop... they don't know I'm covered with flop sweat." That's an expression Bob uses a lot -- flop sweat.
7[1980] You read a lot about movies with budgets of $25 to $30 million. Hell, if a studio can piss away that kind of money, why not let 'em piss on me?
8The important thing is to do good work, no matter what medium you do it in.
1Appeared in three films that were nominated for the Best Picture Oscar: The French Connection (1971), Jaws (1975) and All That Jazz (1979). Of those, The French Connection (1971) is a winner in the category.
2Despite the fact that they played characters that were enemies in Blue Thunder, both Roy Scheider and Malcolm McDowell became very good friends while working on the John Badham film. As McDowell would state at various science fiction conventions, they enjoyed working together so much that they couldn't leave each other alone. When Scheider passed away, a very saddened McDowell was unable to attend Scheider's funeral due to a film project that he was working on and could not leave at the time, much to his dismay. As a result, he immediately ordered some flowers and sent a letter of condolence to Scheider's family.

25Was predeceased by his daughter, Maximillia Connelly Lord (B. July 6, 1963), who died on August 2, 2006 at age 43.
26His grandchildren called him "Chiefy" and "Grandpa Big Fish".
27Served in the United States Air Force for three years and rose to the rank of first lieutenant.
28Was cited as one of the most promising movie personalities of 1973 in John Willis' 1974 Film Annual "Screen World" book.
29Roy completed all his scenes for Iron Cross (2009) before passing away, but a technical error forced the production to reshoot certain scenes without Roy.
30When he was shown in the "In Memoriam" segment during the telecast of the 15th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards (2009), his name was spelled incorrectly: Schieder instead of Scheider.
31Had two grandchildren, Sascha and Tanner.
32His wife, Brenda Seimer, saved the old Art Deco Sag Harbor, New York movie marquee when the owner of the theater was renovating the building, and just tore it down and threw it out. She was threatened with arrest for stealing the sign. Scheider helped organize a community fundraising drive to recreate it, and the theater owner put it back in place.
33Was in talks to appear in the drama film The Verdict (1982).
34On March 4, 2007, Scheider was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the SunDeis Film Festival at Brandeis University, following a screening of his classic film All That Jazz (1979). It was the sixth time that Scheider had seen the film, and the first time for his young daughter, Molly, who accompanied him.

39His name was inspiration for Japanese enterprise Toei create television series Uchû keiji Shaider (1984).
40He was offered the lead role in The Omen (1976) and reportedly was very interested in taking the role, but had to turn in down due to previous commitments. Consequently, his desire to play that type of role (a self-sacrificing, noble hero) led to his accepting the role of Chief Martin Brody in Jaws (1975).
41He was originally cast as Michael Vronsky in The Deer Hunter (1978), as the second movie of a three movie deal with Universal Studios. Because he did not believe that the character would travel around the world to find his friend, he quit the picture. Universal executives were furious, but they agreed to let him out of his Universal contract if he made Jaws 2 (1978), which he did. He later regarded pulling out of The Deer Hunter (1978) as the career decision he most regrets.
