Dennis Farina, the police officer turned star of TV's Law & Order, has died at age 69, his publicist confirmed Monday.

Lori De Waal, his representative, says Farina died Monday morning in a Scottsdale, Ariz., hospital after suffering a blood clot in his lung. He was 69.

Farina was born in Chicago in 1944 and served on the city's police force for 18 years.

He appeared in films including Get Shorty, Saving Private Ryan, Midnight Run and countless TV shows.

Among his many TV portrayals was Det. Joe Fontana on Law & Order.
"Why are you pointing your screwdrivers like that? They're scientific instruments, not water pistols."
"Oh, the pointing again! They're screwdrivers! What are you going to do? Assemble a cabinet at them?"
"Are you capable of speaking without flapping your hands about?"
""Timey" what? "Timey wimey"?"

What was the name of the show he was on with Runaway as the title theme?
- Continuity is or it is not. There is no such thing as soft continuity.
- A character IS his continuity.
- Continuity is consistency of the characteristics of people, plot, objects, and places seen by the reader or viewer.
