RIP Roy Scheider

I liked that guy. He was very good at playing cool people. I mainly remember him from seaQuest DSV, in which he played a submarine captain; I’ve no interest in knowing whether that show still works as an adult – as a kid it was great. Well, at least until Neptune turned up and it went a bit weird. But before that, I loved it. The show’s Wikipedia entry suggests it had a fairly troubled production1 and its first season must be the one I remember. Anyway, Roy Scheider was definitely One Of Those Actors You Can’t Help But Like. RIP.
