The Italian-American community has been paying tribute to actor Ray Liotta after his sudden death at age 67. Liotta, who died in his sleep in the Dominican Republic on May 26, has been fondly remembered, among many others, by fellow actors such as Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, Martin Scorsese and Lorraine Bracco who co-starred with him in Goodfellas, the Academy Award-winning Martin Scorsese film, in which Liotta impressed audiences with his portrayal of gangster Henry Hill.

Then came his tough-guy roles in 1986’s Something Wild, which earned him a Golden Globe nomination for best-supporting actor, and Goodfellas (1990). He also played “Shoeless” Joe Jackson in 1989’s Field of Dreams, opposite Kevin Costner. His rise to fame continued with notable movies such as Cop Land (1997), Hannibal (2001), John Q (2002), Identity (2003), Observe and Report (2009), and The Place Beyond the Pines (2012). He also starred in NBC’s Shades of Blue from 2016 to 2018.
