Ray Liotta, ‘Goodfellas’ and ‘Field of Dreams’ Star, Dies at 67

Ray Liotta has passed away; the actor died in the Dominican Republic.

Ray was filming “Dangerous Waters” on the island, according to a source close to the actor who spoke to FOX3 News. Now… he died in his sleep. We are also informed that the death was not suspicious and that no foul play is suspected.

Ray’s fiancee Jacy Nittolo accompanied him to the Dominican Republic while he worked on the project.

Deadline first reported his passing.

Liotta is best recognised for his performance as mobster Henry Hill in the 1990 Martin Scorsese blockbuster “Goodfellas,” opposite Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci.

Ray lobbied vigorously for the part, and the film’s success opened so many doors for him in Hollywood that he worked virtually nonstop.

Before “Goodfellas,” he co-starred with Kevin Costner in another legendary film, “Field of Dreams,” as Shoeless Joe Jackson.

Ray subsequently starred in numerous additional films, including “Cop Land,” “Corrina Corrina,” “Operation Dumbo Drop,” “Unforgettable,” “Wild Hogs,” and “Blow,” in which he portrayed Fred Jung, the father of Johnny Depp’s character, George Jung.

Jacy and Ray get engaged in 2020, around the holiday season. He enthusiastically posted the good news on Instagram.

Karsen Liotta is his daughter from his former marriage to Michelle Grace. Karsen is following in her father’s footsteps as an actress.

Ray was 67.
