Chicago – Dennis Farina is Chicago. Born and raised in the Windy City, his persona and manner is everything Chicago is – bold, classy and the true urban Midwest. His latest film is “The Last Rites of Joe May,” which features another actor who got his start in Chicago theater, Gary Cole.
Last month, at the Chicago International Film Festival, both actors did a press day promoting their gritty Chicago-based film, which was directed by Joe Maggio. “The Last Rites of Joe May” stars Farina in the role of a lifetime, permeating the wintry streets of Chicago as an aging small time hustler that everyone leaves for dead after he comes back from an extended hospital stay. Gary Cole has a small but significant role as Lenny, the son of one of Joe’s old contacts.
