  • Dennis Farina was a great addition to the cast of Law and Order. I liked his snappy mode of dress, but also the way he handled people who needed to be interviewed, more or less in his own way. I hated to see him leave the show.moreless

    Dennis Farina was great in his role as a detective in Law and Order. He was handsome and a sharp dressed, but obviously was also very street-smart.
