Actor Dennis Farina, who pursued criminals for years as a Chicago cop and then on television’s “Law & Order,” died Monday at the age of 69.
Farina’s representative said Farina died of a blood clot in Scottsdale, Arizona, with his longtime girlfriend, Marianne Cahill, beside him.
Farina was best known as Det. Joe Fontana on “Law & Order,” and playing a police officer came naturally to him after 18 years in Chicago’s force.
