Tributes: Dennis Farina

Friday, July 26, 2013

Dennis Farina came late to acting – after he had spent 20 years as a police officer in Chicago.  His acting career would eventually last longer than his years in law enforcement, though – between stints on series “Law & Order,” “Crime Story,”  and “Luck,” and movies that included “Get Shorty,” “Saving Private Ryan,” and “Midnight Run.”  He died at the age of 69.  He spoke with Leonard back in November of 2001 for his film, “Sidewalks of New York.”
