Dennis Farina Dead at 69

Posted: July 22nd, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Dennis Farina Dead at 69Submit Comment
Dennis Farina, the former real-life Chicago cop who playing hot-tempered characters in movies and on television, died Monday in Scottsdale, Arizona from a blood clot in his lung. He was 69 years old.

Farina, who starred as characters on both sides of the law, was perhaps most memorable as Miami gangster Ray "Bones" Barboni in "Get Shorty." He won an American Comedy Award for the role and shared a SAG nomination with his cast-members John Travolta, Gene Hackman, Rene Russo, and Danny De Vito.

Farina also appeared as Detective Joe Farina in 46 episodes of NBC's "Law and Order." He left in 2006 to pursue film projects. "I was stunned and saddened to hear about Dennis' unexpected passing this morning," said "Law and Order" creator Dick Wolf. "The 'Law and Order' family extends sympathy and condolences to his family. He was a great guy."

Farina also appeared in such films as "Midnight Run" (1988), "Romeo Is Bleeding" (1993), "Another Stakeout" (1993), "That Old Feeling" (1997), "Saving Private Ryan" (1998), "Out of Sight" (1998), "The Mod Squad" (1999), "Snatch" (2000) and "Big Trouble" (2002).

A 10-year veteran of the Chicago police force, Farina was discovered by director Michael Mann during the filming of "Thief" (1981). Farina had served as Mann's tour guide. Impressed by his street savvy, the director cast him in the movie, as well as "Manhunter" and crime series "Hunter" and "Miami Vice."

speaking of Mann.That Miami Vice movie with Farrell was a big pile of sh*t.Yes is sad that bad boys 2 was better.Miami Vice was just too damn serious and very little action.

Farrell has again disgraced another iconic character.Crocket

I believe this post was informative out of spite

Otherwise it would have read:

Deaftone: Farina was in a two part Hunter episode entitled The Snow Queen, but Michael Mann had nothing to do with the show.

Lol i'm at work reading these comments and whatnot. Yeah Michael Mann never had anything to do with Hunter but Farina was in that 2-parter.

Still, Farina was in 44 episodes of Crime Story for the 2 seasons that it aired, and Mann was exec producer on it.

A legitimate news story?!?

Ok, now I'm worried. The day isn't over yet and we still haven't received our daily dose of half nude males. I'm also surprised there isn't a news post about the "Royal Baby" being born.

@Vincere. That's a bullsh*t rumor already shot down. No new STAR WARS news for months leads to some moron at ComicCon to start spreading false crap.
