Murray Hamilton, Roy Scheider, Richard Dreyfuss

He was born on this day, March 24th in 1923 in Washington, North Carolina and would've turned 93 this year: Character Actor Murray Hamilton.

He started acting, both on stage and in films in the mid 40's and appeared in over 150 films and TV-series during his career, including films such as The Hustler, The Graduate or The Way We Were, and series like The Untouchables, Mission: Impossible and Night Gallery, but he became world famous portraying Mayor Larry Vaughn in Steven Spielberg's Jaws in 1975.

He re-appeared as the (in)famous mayor in the film's sequel Jaws 2 in 1978, together with Roy Scheider and Lorraine Gary...

And re-appeared in 1979, in a smaller role (portraying a character named Claude Grumn) in Spielberg's 1941.

Hamilton never really became a household name or a big star. He would (often) be that actor that everybody had seen, but no one knew what his name was. Let it be known now.

On September 1, 1986, he passed away, from the effects of cancer.
