‘Goodfellas’ Actor Ray Liotta Dead At 67

Actor Ray Liotta, best known for his roles in “Field of Dreams” and “Goodfellas,” has died at the age of 67, according to reports Thursday.

The actor was filming a movie called “Dangerous Waters” in the Dominican Republic when he died in his sleep. No foul play is suspected, Deadline and TMZ first reported.

Liotta’s publicist, Jennifer Allen, confirmed the circumstances of his death to NBC News.

The Golden Globe-nominated actor was best known for playing American mobster Henry Hill in the 1990 Martin Scorsese-directed blockbuster “Goodfellas,” in which he starred alongside actors Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci. He was also known for his portrayal of Shoeless Joe Jackson in the 1989 sports film “Field of Dreams,” alongside Kevin Costner.

Some of his recent movies include “Marriage Story,” in which he portrayed an aggressive, high-powered Hollywood divorce attorney, and the 2021 Sopranos prequel “The Many Saints of Newark.”

Liotta was on the island with his fiancee, Jacy Nittolo, at the time of his death, TMZ reported. He also leaves behind an adult daughter.
