    So long Roy, we’ll miss ya!
    The first movie I saw him in was Jaws (well, parts of it, I was only 6), but I always thought he was a great actor.

      What I loved with Jaws is how I get the feeling of ordainary guy taking on a problem, not some polished Hollywood superhero. 2010 isn’t his best either (though obviousy relating to this genre) – there are a fantastic number of what may be B-movies that he also lends gravitas to.

    A shame…
    I just watched 2010 the other day…I like Roy, though I think in that movie, his lines sounded too…rehearsed or something – it’s hard to explain. Actually much of the acting feels like that, so I don’t blame Roy but the director perhaps. In any case, it’s a shame he’s gone.
