About Roy Scheider (1932 – 2008)
Roy Scheider was born on November 10, 1932 in Orange, New Jersey.

Roy was given a broken nose as a result of his foray into Golden Gloves competitions! his pursuits turned from sports to theatre.

Scheider first came to the attention of film audiences in 1971 with his role in Klute.

He achieved pop stardom by fighting and blowing up a 25-foot great white shark (nicknamed "Bruce") in Steven Spielberg's uber-thriller Jaws (1975) and then electrocuting an even bigger great white in the vastly inferior Jaws 2 (1978). His Jaws improvisation, "We're gonna need a bigger boat," has entered the pop culture as a way of saying that more resources are needed for the successful completion of a project.

Aside from thrillers, Scheider appeared in the New York Shakespeare Festival and won an "Obie Award" for his appearance in the play Stephen D.
