RIP Dennis Farina

Too bad. 
Farina died Monday morning in a Scottsdale, Ariz., hospital after suffering a blood clot in his lung, according to his publicist, Lori De Waal. He was 69.
Being from Chicago and knowing some actual Chicago cops, which was what he did for almost 20 years before becoming an actor, I can tell you that there are about a million Dennis Farinas here. So you feel like you know him because if you know one, you pretty much know them all.  No nonsense type guys that'll tell you how it is without sparing your feelings because fuck you if you can't take it, what are you some kind of a pussy?

He also had a very bit part in Thief, one of my all time favorite movies. You have to look carefully because if you aren't looking for him you probably won't recognize him.  The guy you see in the movie was very likely the guy in real life. It's too bad.
