Just saw this on the news that Ray Liotta has passed away.

He allegedly died in his sleep. Hopefully it wasn't anything drug related.

OK, so I am NOT trying to make fun of the dead in a bad way I'm just sharing a Ray Liotta memory that actually happened on Discord on this site years ago.

Me, and I think G08, @Bears Whiskey Nut and a few others were all laughing about the Ray Liotta Chantix commercials and then relating it back to Goodfellas.

Well then lo and behold there's actually a video on YouTube relating Chantix to Goodfellas and we almost died laughing.

Always a bit disturbing when someone my age passes. He was kind of typecast but played those roles well. RIP.

I liked him, I found him a very convincing actor.

His career never really surged after Goodfellas, but he had a lot of great smaller roles in stuff like Field of Dreams, Blow, John Q., and of course he crushed it as Tommy Vercetti in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

Ray Liotta's last film? Based on a true story.

Bear related.

Also in my neck of the woods.
