Ray Liotta, R.I.P.


I was stunned to just hear that Ray Liotta, that massively underrated actor who appeared in some truly great films and who always brought a dangerous but intriguing intensity to every role, died today.  He was 67 years old.

I’m going to share two scenes in honor of Ray, I’m sure that others will have more to say.  The first scene is from a favorite of Arleigh’s, Field of Dreams.  Ray doesn’t say much as Shoeless Joe Jackson but he’s already got that trademark intensity.  The second is the final scene from Goodfellas, which features Ray Liotta’s best work of the entire film.  The small moment when he briefly acknowledges the camera while getting his newspaper is brilliant.

RIP, Ray Liotta.
