Thank Goodness!

I like Dennis, but not in this role and I couldn't stand Annie Parisse's character even though I liked her acting in other roles. I realize nobody can replace Jerry Orbach but I found Dennis Farina's character to be offensive and irritating. - Dennis Farina to leave 'Law & Order' - May 31, 2006:Farina has decided to leave his role as New York police Detective Joe Fontana after two seasons on the NBC drama to pursue other offers and projects being developed by his production company, his spokeswoman, Lori De Waal, said Tuesday.

The actor's movie credits include "Get Shorty," "Midnight Run," "Out of Sight" and the upcoming "Purple Violets" and "You Kill Me."

Dick Wolf, creator and executive producer of "Law & Order," said in a statement that he respected Farina's decision and looked forward to working with him again.

Farina's departure isn't the only change for "Law & Order," which has a long history of cast turnover. Assistant district attorney Alexandra Borgia, played by Annie Parisse, was killed in the season finale as she investigated a murder case.
She didn't deserve to die that way. The way they got rid of Jill Hennessy was bad enough, but at least I have Crossing Jordan.
