DENNIS FARINA JOINS CAST AS SLICK DETECTIVE WHEN POLICE PROBE SLAYING OF GULF WAR VETERAN -- Dennis Farina ("Get Shorty") joins the cast as Detective Joe Fontana, a stylish veteran uneasily paired with Detective Green (Jesse L.

However, when D.A.s McCoy (Sam Waterston) and Southerlyn (Elisabeth Rome) begin to prosecute, they discover that the suspect's lawyer boldly plans to defend his client as an "enemy soldier" -- subject only to the terms of the Geneva Convention.
