Roy Scheider was an exceptionally talented American actor who rose to fame, playing tough guy characters in films like, The French Connection, Jaws, its sequel Jaws 2 and Marathon Man. Son of an auto mechanic, Scheider did not intend to become an actor early in his life. In fact, he was initially interested in athletics.
