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."
