Who didn't love this movie growing up? Actor Roy Scheider was Police Chief Martin Brody. And he saved Montauk; made The Hamptons safe again.
Well Chief Brody died yesterday after battling multiple myeloma for several years and suffering complications from a staph infection. MM is a type of cancer inside plasma cells which are immune system cells in bone marrow that produce antibodies; it basically makes you immune to your own goddamn antibodies.
He was 75 and had been living in Sag Harbor, New York for many years. He was originally from New Jersey.
What have we learned? If the sharks don't get you, cancer surely will. Fuck.
