Dennis Farina in 'Striking Distance'
Dennis Farina (1944 - 2013)
Police officer turned actor
Men of Respect (1991) [Bankie Como]: Killed by John Turturro or John's thugs. (It's been some time since I've seen this movie, so my memory is vague.)

Striking Distance (1993) [Captain Nick Detillo]: Shot in the chest by his son (Robert Pastorelli), after Dennis shoots Robert first (not knowing Robert was wearing a bulletproof vest).

Get Shorty (1995) [Ray 'Bones' Barboni]: Presumably shot to death in a shoot-out in an airport; as soon as Dennis opens the airport locker, it cuts to a film-within-the-film re-creation of the incident, with Harvey Keitel playing Dennis' part.

Reindeer Games (2000) [Jack Bangs]: Shot to death during a shoot-out in the casino.
