Dennis Farina – One Of Chicago’s Very Own

Heaven just got a little bit more crowed today as one of Chicago’s very own Dennis Farina decided it was time to class up the joint.

Believe it or not, at one point in time he actually was a Chicago police officer. Looking at his IMDB credits is like taking a trip down memory lane.  In Midnight Run, one of my favorite movies, he was fantastic.  Also loved him in Get Shorty.  The list literally goes on and on.

Love him or hate him, he was was one of Chicago’s finest and will be missed.  So today, we raise our Old Style beer to you and toast, well done good sir, well done.

I want to leave you with a couple of my favorite clips of his work.

    I was lucky enough to meet Dennis Farina at the Victory Garden Theatre on Lincoln Avenue one afternoon. I was in buying a season pass in 1997/’98. When in walked Mr. Farina I was flabbergasted to say the least. One of my favorite actors standing before left me speechless.
    He will be sorely missed around here and in other peoples t.v. rooms!
    You’re right about classing up the joint he was always dressed like one of those guys back in the 40’s.
    God bless Dennis and thanks for the memories.
