Sad to see him go. He was in several of my favorite films. JAWS of course as well as The French Connection and Marathon Man. I even like the first season of SeaQuest.

He died at the teaching hospital where I got my degree.

I liked seaQuest too.  I started watching because I thought Jonathon Brandis was a fox back in the day, but Captain Bridger was probably my favorite character (besides Darwin).

I miss read the thread title and saw ROB instead of Roy.

Can we counter offer?  I could go three to one sucky Vs. good actors and we still come out ahead.

He should have won the Oscar for that role.  Kramer Vs Kramer was crap.

I remember him best from 2010, that movie amazed me and so did everyone in it.

I also remember him calling the guy who wrote the critical book about bob fosse , cursing him and and making some near threatening statements, which were completely called for.
Everyone who believes in justice, racial equality and free speech should support Duane "the Dog" Chapman and boycott anyone who takes action against him.

Let me third the sentiment regarding All That Jazz.  One of my all time favorite movies that I still watch at least once a year.  Fantastic movie and he was great in it.

For years I thought his name was Schneider. That's what watching TV in the 80s gets you.

2010 was awesome, despite what laaaame Kubrick-fellating critics say.

However, Roy also played The Punisher's dad, which is just stupid.
