“`Ray Liotta was a rugged actor with piercing eyes.  He was best known for his performances in Field of Dreams and GoodFellas. He also portrayed singer Frank Sinatra in the television movie The Rat Pack for which he received a SAG Awards nomination.

“`Liotta moved to New York after his graduation from college to try his luck at acting. He got a job as a bartender at the Shubert Organization and landed an agent within six months. One of his earliest roles was on the soap opera Another World. He quit the show after three years so he could try his luck in the film industry in Los Angeles. He made his movie debut in 1983’s The Lonely Lady. His initial major acting assignment was in Something Wild, which earned him his first Golden Globes nomination.

“`After his breakthrough performances in Field of Dreams and GoodFellas, he would stay busy in Hollywood for the rest of his career, with notable performances in  Unlawful Entry, John Q, Narc, Hannibal, and Smokin’ Aces. Liotta was partial to animation and children’s programmming and he appeared in flicks with SpongeBob SquarePants and The Muppets. At the time of his passing, Liotta had several projects in production.

“`Ray Liotta was sixty-seven.

To honor the memory of this fine actor, I present a tribute to the movie GoodFellas on my podcast, Manny Pacheco’s Forgotten Hollywood.
