Dennis Farina was good 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.
