DENNIS FARINA WAS EQUALLY BELIEVABLE AS A COP OR A GANGSTER

#dennisfarina #janetcharlton

We always felt a tiny connection with actor Dennis Farina because he spent 18 years (‘67 to ‘85) as a Chicago cop and we grew up there. (Don’t know if he was one of those cops who expected bribes, but many of them did in those days – and they all seemed to be big and have deep voices, unlike Los Angeles cops.) Dennis started out as a police consultant for director Michael Mann and got into acting. He always retained his thick Chicago accent and played gangsters and police officers with equal gusto in numerous movies and TV series. His death from a blood clot was sudden and hopefully painless, but we will miss him. (Above in Law & Order with Michael Imperioli)

  1. Farina always owned the screen no matter who he was sharing it with. He will be missed.

  2. Oh dear. R.I.P. Dennis Farina. You were such a sexy natural born actor. The camera loved you.

  3. He was killer in everything, especially Snatch, Get Shorty and Midnight Run.
