“`Brian Dennehy was a fine character actor; with a tough guy image, he made a perfect police detective on screen. He was busy in cinema and on television.

“`Dennehy earned a football scholarship in high school. He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 1958, and served on Okinawa until 1963.  After the military, he became a stock broker before the acting bug bit him.

“`He appeared in plenty of notable productions, including Semi Tough, Foul Play, 10, First Blood, Gorky Park, Silverado, Cocoon, The Man from Snowy River, and Legal Eagles. On television, Brian guest-starred in Kojak, Lou Grant, M*A*S*H, Dallas, Knots Landing, Dynasty, Cagney and Lacey, Miami Vice, The West Wing, and The Good Wife. He was a winner of one Golden Globe, two Tony Awards and recipient of six Primetime Emmy Award nominations.

“`The dependable Brian Dennehy (above) was eighty-one.
