Did you hear that Dennis Farino has died?
The MSN article is here.
I have always had a real appreciation for character actors. Dennis Farino was a former Chicago cop who frequently portrayed a cop on TV and in the movies. He also had a flair for comedy and my first thought when I saw that he had passed away was of his role as Bette Midler's ex-husband in That Old Feeling. Not his most memorable role, but for some reason it popped right into my head.
What was your favorite Dennis Farino role? "Bones" Barboni in Get Shorty? Detective Joe Fontana on Law & Order?
RIP Dennis Farino.
