Cop turned actor Dennis Farina dies

Dennis Farina, a former Chicago policeman turned tough-guy actor, died in Scottsdale, Arizona, on Monday (July 22). He was 69. Farina, who played detective Joe Fontana on the long-running TV series "Law & Order," suffered a blood clot in his lung. Chicago-born Farina earned his first credited role in a bit part in the 1981 Michael Mann film "Thief" and would go on to play mobsters in 1988 comedy "Midnight Run" and 1995 comedy "Get Shorty." The actor's final starring role was in the short-lived HBO TV series "Luck" opposite Dustin Hoffman.
