Ray Liotta Tribute Week Wrap-up

Ray Liotta Tribute Week

Hello dear visitors!
This is my Ray Liotta tribute week wrap-up.

I was really happy with the last 2 movies we watched with Ray. Something Wild, which is a fantastic indie cult classic from the 80's that's hard to categorize, and Sticky Notes, a somewhat hidden gem from 2016.

It was good also to reminisce with "No Escape". I recommend watching the Making Of I posted in the review. That video changed some opinions I had about the movie. I didn't consider the amazing architectural work involved in that movie, for example.

"Narc" and "Article 99" were OK. They weren't boring, at least.

I wouldn't mind continuing to watch Liotta's movies, but tomorrow I will have to announce a new theme for next week and move on.

I will leave you with some trivia about Mr. Liotta below our movie list, ordered by best to worst.

Have a great week!
Our blog is update everyday at 21:00 (WEST)

Some trivia about Ray Liota:

He began his acting career as the villain Joe Heron in a controversial rape scene in the 1983 film, The Lonely Lady. He later played Joey Perrini on the soap opera, Another World. The role lasted from 1978 until 1981.

Ray Liotta was adopted when he was six months old. He has never sought out his birth parents.

For his part as Henry Oak in the 2002 film “Narc”, he gained a total of 20 pounds and also wore small lifts under his clothing to make himself appear larger in size.

In 1989 he turned down the part of Harvey Dent in “Batman” to take a role in the 1990 box office hit “Goodfellas.” Till today fans consider that his most memorable role to date.

Became a father for the first time at age 44, when his then-wife Michelle Grace gave birth to their daughter Karsen Liotta in December 1998.

British rock band Linoleum recorded a song called "Ray Liotta" (Find the song below).

He admitted that took the role of Tommy Vercetti in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (2002) purely for the money. In an MTV interview, he admitted that he's never seen or played the game. In another interview, he was asked if could do the role again, knowing it was a going to be hit. What would he have done differently. His reply was "Ask for more money".

He has appeared in two films that have been selected for the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically or aesthetically" significant: Field of Dreams (1989) and Goodfellas (1990).
