Call in to speak with the host
Chicago actor Dennis Farina returns to his roots in The Last Rites of Joe May playing a down and out hustler.
Dennis tells host Robin Milling what it was like to return to his old neighborhood and how he loves to take a little momento from each film.
"I have a shirt that was worn by Gene Hackman in The Unforgiven that I wore in a movie. From The Rites of Joe May I have the leather jacket my character wore. When the wardrobe ladies came to me I said, 'this jacket is Joe May.'"
Sadly, Dennis Farina passed away July 22, 2013 at the age of 69. On screen he might have played the tough guy, but off screen he was a gentle, soft spoken and lovely man.
It's good to talk.
