We’ve Lost Dennis Farina; One Of The Good Guys


Dennis Farina was one of the good guys (literally, he was cop before he became an actor). Farina was the type of performer who could enhance a movie, even if he was in just one scene. He’s most famous for his tough guy roles, but he could deliver it all. It’s a damn shame that he died today aged 69. He got into acting after Michael Mann gave him a small role in his 1981 film Thief.

Great Dennis Farina performances:

Manhunter, Out of Sight, Reindeer Games (Deception), Get Shorty and Crime Story (television series).

He was always great – but these are my favourites.
