Ugh, hate this, but the great Dennis Farina, an ex-cop who created a great second career as a distinctive character actor in numerous movies and TV shows, has died: http://www.deadline.com/2013/07/r-i-p-dennis-farina/My favorites of Farina’s work were as a police lieutenant in a long-gone 1980s cop show called "Crime Story" and in the great little Steven Soderbergh film "Out of Sight" with George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez (dig it out on Netflix or otherwise; fantastic film). How about you? Did you have any particular favorites in Farina’s long body of work?
