We Lost Dennis Farina (1944 – 2013)
Veteran police offer turned actor Dennis Farina died this morning at age 69 in Scottsdale, Az. from a blood clot in his lungs, according to TMZ. He’s probably remembered best my generation for his role in Snatch, but also had solid performances in Out of Sight, Midnight Run and pretty much whatever he was in. The man was a workhorse. He also was in What Happens in Vegas with Ashton Kutcher, but just like I didn’t mention that James Gandolfini was in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone when he died, let’s forget I spoke out of respect. But on a serious note, Dennis Farina didn’t pull any “cockamamie bullshit” like these new actors coming up today, and I’ll always remember him saying something like that in my mind to Justin Bieber who just pissed his pants.
Rest in Peace.
