Law & Order’s Dennis Farina Dies

Dennis Farina, who played the sharp-dressed Detective Joe Fontana in seasons 15 and 16 of Law & Order, has died. Various reports indicate he died Monday July 22, 2013 from a blood clot in his lung. Early in his career, he served as a police officer in Chicago, and this brought a real-life dimension to his role on Law & Order. (His standard Fontana line - "We're authorized!")

Just heard of Dennis Farina's passing. Though Fontana was not a favorite of mine, I always hold a special place in my heart for former L&O cast members.

May he RIP.

I was without internet for the past 2 months. I loved that Fontana character myself.

Happy Trails, Dennis Farina.
