    Dennis Farina, a former police officer who became a star of "Law & Order," died today at the age of 69, his publicist told FOX411.

    He worked on films like "Saving Private Ryan" and "Midnight Run" and was eventually cast to replace Jerry Orbach on the television series "Law & Order."

    It's too bad. The guy was always fun to watch.

    I seem to recall him doing some commercial work lately.
