Very sad indeed. I was just watching some Season 1 episodes of seaQuest last week and enjoying his performances so much. Mr. Scheider was a great actor, the kind who brings a tremendous amount of gravity and credibility to any role and project he tackled. He was also incredibly dynamic, going from the water-phobic police chief in Jaws to the Fosse-inspired choreographer in All That Jazz, and of course Captain Bridger. Definitely one of my favorites, and he will be missed.
