Dennis Farina: 1944-2013
Sad news: Dennis Farina has died, at the age of 69.
Now here's some bad news. The actor Dennis Farina has died, at the age of 69. He died in Arizona, due to a blood clot in his lung.
Farina, a former police officer, leaves behind a body of work that's to be envied. His work in the likes of Midnight Run and Manhunter remain highlights, and his credits extended to films as diverse as Saving Private Ryan, Get Shorty, The Mod Squad, Snatch and Out Of Sight. There was the small matter of an extensive collection of television credits, too, not least the juggernaut that is Law And Order.
Our thoughts are very much with Dennis Farina's friends and family, and our appreciation goes to the great man himself for his terrific work, that we've had a hell of a good time watching over the years. Rest in peace, sir.
