(sigh) Another one dies. Dennis Farina, one of my favorite character actors, died today. He was 69. He was a veteran Chicago cop that fell into acting in the early 80’s. He did great work in Get Shorty, Out of Sight and Snatch, among others (and those three are some of my favorite movies) as well as Law & Order. I first noticed him in another favorite movie, Midnight Run, starring Robert DeNiro and Charles Grodin. Farina played the mobster that was after Grodin’s character. Farina may have had the best delivery of the word “fuck” and its variations as seen here.
Great stuff from a great guy.
