I can't think of one actor who has played as many police/law enforcement types. (Dennis Franz comes close, but he alternated by playing sleazy criminal types as well.)

I always loved how dapper he looked on L&O. The photo you used is perfect.

Dapper is very much the word. And one of the great mustaches in tv/movie history.

Oh, man!

Farina was one of my favorite actors. I knew him mostly for his role on Law & Order,, where he did a great deal to make up for what was a fairly lackluster period on the show. Fontana was a great character. He could be suave and easy-going, but shift suddenly into rage or (scarier) slow-burning anger. Farina played him perfectly.

I remember him from Crime Story. great show. (and he was really a real cop before he was an actor.)

It's amazing how many people are like...I LOVED CRIME STORY, when it really didn't get the love or the ratings at the time.

I guess he'd had cancer...
so for him, it was merciful that it was so fast.

Oh I loved him in so many things. I believe he came into Law & Order right after Jerry Orbach, but I loved him as much on the show. Such a fine actor and handsome man. RIP.

He's one of those guys who you go down his IMDB list and you're like, oh yeah, I'd forgotten he was in that...man he was good.
