Farewell, Roy Scheider
Well, it was a day of mixed emotion. Odd, I guess. One of my personal favorite actors, Roy Scheider passed away Sunday afternoon. He may not seem like a hollywood notable to many, but I was always impressed by him. When I was younger, probably 12-13 I saw him at the Godspeed Opera house in a production of “Richard III” and he was really good. He then, of course, went on to do other things, all with reasonable success. I have to say, I really enjoyed 2010 with him as the lead. Anyhow, all my best to his family in this sad time for them.
