Ray Liotta, ‘Goodfellas’ and ‘Field of Dreams’ Star, Dead at 66

Ray Liotta, the actor most well known for his roles in the movies Goodfellas and Field of Dreams, died in his sleep. He was 67.

Multiple reports are confirming that he passed overnight in the Dominican Republic, where he was busy shooting his next project, Dangerous Waters.

His cause of death and other details were not known at the time of this report.

His role as Shoeless Joe Jackson in Field of Dreams is what many consider his big break though he earned a Golden Globe nomination for Something Wild. He launched into another stratosphere as gangster Henry Hill in Martin Scorsese’s epic Goodfellas, playing opposite Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci.

Liotta was going though a bit of a career resurgence in recent years after being on the more prominent actors in Hollywood not long ago.

He was pushed back into the mainstream with The Many Saints of Newark, Marriage Story — which earned him a 2020 Indie Spirit Award for its ensemble — as well as No Sudden Move. He recently wrapped up work on the Elizabeth Banks-directed Cocaine Bear and was set to star in a film called The Substance opposite Demi Moore.

He was also featured in films Hannibal, Narc, Blow and Copland.

Liotta leaves behind his daughter, Karsen.

He was engaged to be married to the podcaster Jacy Nittolo.
