Shocked to hear that Dennis Farina passed away last night due to a blood clot in his lung. He was 69.

 

Loved watching Mr. Farina in films like SNATCH and GET SHORTY. 

 

Very sad news!

He also had one season on Law and Order, in which I thought he was terrific. Never knew why it was just one season. He could play both sides of the law and could be quite funny.

Wow. Sorry to see this. He was one of the more memorable characters in SNATCH.

 

Customs agent: Anything to declare?

Cousin Avi: Yeah. Don't go to England!

 

I always crack up when he says that line..

 

RIP

He actually had two seasons, but yeah, he was terrific as Detective Fontana.
