Farina, who played Det. Joe Fontana, died in Arizona after suffering a blood clot in his lung, his publicist confirmed.
The former police officer turned character actor usually played a gangster or mobster, and even his more heroic roles had a tinge of menace to them.
He also appeared in the HBO drama Luck as Gus Demitriou, the driver, confidante and “muscle” for horse owner Chester “Ace” Bernstein, played by Dustin Hoffman and had a recurring role in New Girl.
His film roles included Out of Sight, Midnight Run, Get Shorty and Saving Private Ryan, Reindeer Games, The Mod Squad, Manhunter and Thief.
