Law and Order

In TV Shows on September 7, 2013 at 5:51 AM

In July, we lost one if the best actors to ever grace the set if Law & Order. I’m talking, of course about Dennis Farina. He was my favourite character in the series, and just because he had the demeanor of a modern system Mike Hammer, but because he took his real life experience as a cop in Chicago and transferred that to the show. I often times lay awake at night wondering how great the series would’ve been if he and the late Jerry Orbach had been able to team up. Sadly, however Farina came in to replace the departed Orbach, so us fans are left to ponder and create fanfiction to team them.
Orbach’s frumpled old-school detective paired with Farina’s GQ…..man…

Of course, Farina didn’t only star in Law & Order. He made is mark in Hollywood with other police shows like Miami Vice, he also had a role in Snatch, and some Ashton Kutcher flop… The frequent typecast, Farina started his acting career at age 40! With his background, it’s easy to see why he played police officers…
Detective Joe Fontana, when he debuted, my father and I both questioned questioned if he was “on the take” or not, given that his suits where custom tailored, as he often stated when a perp caused him to snag his jacket somehow.
In the episode that I’m currently viewing, Fontana dunks a guys head in the toilet three times, almost comprising the investigation!

I believe the two years with Farina where, by far, the best. If they could’ve put Orbach, Farina and Angie Harmon in the same episode…….

Rest in peace Dennis, your acting abilities where beyond superb! Hope you and Orbach are teaming I’ll in the afterlife
