Dennis Farina Dead at 69

Reports coming from pretty much everywhere that veteran actor Dennis Farina has passed away today.

Farina was born in Chicago, and started as a police officer there from 1967-1985 before trying his hand at acting, where he found great success in films like Snatch and Get Short. He was also a star on the small screen during a memorable run on Law & Order, which is where my fondest memories of him come from.

Dennis Farina leaves behind three adult children from a previous marriage, and a rep for the actor says he was survived by "the love of his life of 35 years, Marianne Cahill." He reportedly died from a blood clot in his lungs.

He will be forever remembered as the no nonsense kind of character the world sorely misses today.
