First Gandolfini, now Farina. So sad, RIP Dennis.




Farina died Monday morning in a Scottsdale, Ariz., hospital after suffering a blood clot in his lung, according to his publicist, Lori De Waal. He was 69.

For three decades, Farina was a character actor who displayed remarkable dexterity, charm and, when called for, toughness, making effective use of his craggy face, steel-gray hair, ivory smile and ample mustache.

Farina appeared in films including "Get Shorty," ''Saving Private Ryan," ''Midnight Run" and "Out Of Sight."

Among his many TV portrayals was Detective Joe Fontana on "Law & Order" during the 2004-06 seasons. He eventually left the show to pursue other projects. He also starred in the 1980s cult favorite "Crime Story" and was a regular in the 2011-12 HBO drama "Luck."

So sad Trueman. Bumped with a heavy heart.
If you get the chance at a cheap print of "Manhunter", the Red Dragon prequel directed
by Michael Mann, pick it up. I like Harvey Keitel a LOT, but the dialog and natural
electricity between Dennis and Will Peterson was great.
"You've seen this... haven't you, my man?"
So many good ones, but that was one of the best five cop yarns I've ever watched.
So long Sarge. Nobody could forget you if they tried... I wouldn't even.

No, but he was in Thief with James Caan.

I've liked him ever since I seen him in Crime Story. And I always made a point to see the films he was in. RIP.

I loved this guy! He was one of my favorite actors, right next to Christopher Walken.
A line from one of his movies, I believe it was 'Get Shorty', has to be one of the best/funniest deliveries, with perfect comedic timing, that I know of.

The phrase?

"Eff You, Eff-ball"
