Roy Scheider


Roy Scheider Trivia


  • Trivia

    • Roy Scheider was originally cast as Michael in The Deer Hunter, which would have been the second movie of a three picture deal with Universal. Because he did not believe that the character would travel around the world to find his friend, he quit the movie. Universal executives were furious, but they let him out of his contract when he agreed to do Jaws 2. The character of Michael was played instead by Robert DeNiro.
