Dennis Farina (1944 - 2013)
Chicago police officer turned actor
Was on duty during both the 1968 Chicago riots and the riots at the 1968 Democratic National Convention.
- Men of Respect (1991) [Bankie Como]: Killed by John Turturro or John's thugs. (It's been some time since I've seen this movie, so my memory is vague.)
- Romeo Is Bleeding(1993) [Nick Gazzara]: Machine gunned to death off-screen by Lena Olin . His body is briefly shown when his death is mentioned to Gary Oldman.
- Striking Distance (1993) [Captain Nick Detillo]: Shot in the chest by his son (Robert Pastorelli), after Dennis shoots Robert first (not knowing Robert was wearing a bulletproof vest).
- Get Shorty (1995) [Ray 'Bones' Barboni]: Presumably shot to death in a shoot-out in an airport; as soon as Dennis opens the airport locker, it cuts to a film-within-the-film re-creation of the incident, with Harvey Keitel playing Dennis' part.
- The Mod Squad (1999) [Greer]: Shot in the chest by Sam McMurray (off-screen); his body is shown when Claire Danes, Giovanni Ribisi, and Omar Epps discover him in an alleyway.
- Reindeer Games (2000) [Jack Bangs]: Shot to death during a shoot-out in the casino.
- You Kill Me (2007) [Edward O'Leary]: Shot in the chest by Ben Kingsley.
