Roy Scheider just died after a two year battle with cancer of the plasma (myeloma). First of all, I didn't think you could even get plasma cancer...I wonder if he picked that up on his adventures on Seaquest DSV...must be some crazy deep sea cancer (first Jonathan Brandis, now this?). I was really bummed to hear this news, as he was totally awesome...and even killed JAWS. This guy KILLED JAWS. THE JAWS...but cancer got him. Just shows you how tough cancer can be.
He sailed to the great beyond berthing from Little Rock AR, which is about 3 hours away from me. That'd be cool, if we weren't talking about him dying and everything.
Check his obituary here. He was a kick ass dude.
