Ray Liotta, star of Goodfellas and GTA Vice City, dies at 67

Ray Liotta, an actor best known for playing mobster Henry Hill in Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas, died on Thursday at the age of 67. Liotta died in his sleep while in the Dominican Republic filming a new movie, according to Deadline.

Liotta’s breakthrough role came just a year before Goodfellas when he played baseball player Shoeless Joe Jackson in Field of Dreams, but it was Scorsese’s mafia epic that made him a gangster movie icon alongside Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci. Liotta regularly played tough guys in movies and was an intimidating presence even when he was laughing.
