Hollywood reacts to loss of Dennis Farina

He didn't start out an actor, but on Monday Tinseltown mourned the death of Dennis Farina as if he had been born to the stage.

The former police officer died at the age of 69, and Twitter immediately lit up with celebrity tributes for the former police officer who found fame on shows such as "Crime Story" and "Law & Order."

Actress Dana Delany, star of China Beach in which Farina guest-starred as Lt. Col. Edward Vincent in an episode, tweeted "Aww, Dennis Farina. He had a twinkle in his eye that could charm you & ice you at the same time. Too young."

Other stars also weighed in:

    OMG! Shocked at the sudden death of Dennis Farina. He was a talented actor who gave us many great pictures. He didn't appear sick, saw him on re-runs and in current movies, of which he yes, stole your heart, put fear in you when he wanted an answer, yet emerged making you laugh hilariously at his expressions and words. Another "Fine" actor who stumbled into acting and became a house hold name. Dennis Farina will be missed greatly, but never forgotten for his Charasmatic Appeal. in the movie "That Old Feeling". Their were many others but in this movie with Bette Midler, he was simply himself, and the chemistry between Midler and himself undeniably hilarious as only these two could do. RIP Mr. Farina. See you in the reruns.....

    Aw, that's too bad. What did he die from, Henry Hanks? Whatever it was, 69 is still too young to die. Hec, most of us will still be working at that age. RIP Mr. Farina.
