Ray Liotta, ‘Goodfellas’ star, is dead at 67

Ray Liotta, noted for his appearances in “Field of Dreams” and Martin Scorsese’s gangster classic “Goodfellas,” has passed away. He was 67 years old at the time.

“When Ray died, he was working on a project called ‘Dangerous Waters’ in the Dominican Republic. He died peacefully in his sleep. Karsen, his daughter, and Jacy Nittolo, his fiancée, survive him “Jennifer Allen.

Liotta was born in Newark, New Jersey, to Alfred and Mary Liotta, who also adopted a daughter, Linda.

He attended Union High School and moved on to the University of Miami, where he excelled in athletics. He majored in theatre and had his first acting role in “Cabaret.”

After graduating from college, Liotta relocated to New York City, where he worked in commercials until landing the role of Joey Perrini on the daytime serial opera “Another World,” which he starred in from 1978 to 1981.

In the 1986 Jonathan Demme film “Something Wild,” he played insane ex-con Ray Sinclair, which proved to be a breakout role for the actor.

Following that, Liotta starred alongside Kevin Costner in the box office blockbuster “Field of Dreams” as baseball player “Shoeless” Joe Jackson.

Perhaps his most famous performance was as real-life gangster Henry Hill in the 1990 film “Goodfellas,” in which he starred alongside Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci.

On Thursday, Lorraine Bracco, who played Liotta’s wife in “Goodfellas,” paid tribute to him.

In a tweet, Bracco stated, “I am absolutely saddened to hear this dreadful news about my Ray.” “People will approach me from all over the world and tell me that their favorite film is Goodfellas. Then they always want to know what the most enjoyable aspect of creating the film was. Ray Liotta, that’s always been my answer.”

When questioned by The Guardian in 2021 why he never worked with Scorsese again, Liotta said, “Because the filmmaker has a habit of utilizing some of the same actors in other movies.” “You’d have to ask him, I’m afraid. But it’s something I’d like to do.” That’s not to say he didn’t find jobs over the years.

“John Q,” “Blow,” “Operation Dumbo Drop,” “Hannibal,” “Wild Hogs,” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” are among Liotta’s many film and television credits.

More recently, Liotta participated in “The Many Saints of Newark,” a prequel film to the blockbuster television mob series “The Sopranos,” and narrated the TV docuseries “The Making of the Mob.”

Liotta played a lot of nasty guys, but it wasn’t his genuine persona.
Last year, he told People Magazine, “I have never gotten in a fight at all, except during sports, and that’s just pushing and dumb kid things.”

“Ray was the embodiment of a strong person on the inside who was all soft… Jennifer Lopez, who co-starred with Liotta in the TV cop series “Shades of Blue,” stated, “I believe that’s what made him such a captivating performer to watch.”

“We had a great time working on our sequences together, and I felt fortunate to have him there to collaborate with and learn from. He was complicated, truthful, honest, and incredibly emotional, as all artists are “On Thursday, she posted on Instagram. “He was very approachable and in touch with his acting, like a raw nerve, and I will always remember our time together warmly. Today, we lost a legend.”
