The Kenblog: Remembering Ray Liotta
Later films would see him as a corrupt cop in “Narc,” a hard-assed FBI supervisor in “Hannibal” the sequel to “Silence Of The Lambs.” He also starred in flops like “Turbulence” and “No Escape” but terrified in the thriller “Unlawful Entry.” Later he had a big role as the biker gang leader in the comedy “Wild Hogs” as well as a three-year stint on television opposite Jennifer Lopez in the cop show “Shades Of Blue.” In later years he had scene stealing roles in movies such as “Marriage Story” and “The Many Saints Of Newark.” Not enough can be said about this man’s iconic career. The epitome of a character actor, legendary cinematic tough guy Ray Liotta was considered to be, not surprisingly, one of the nicest people to work with behind the camera, a giving actor who did his best to make everyone on set feel comfortable. The biggest compliment I can pay the man is that even though I did not know him, he’s a man I would have liked to have known. Below are scenes from some of his classic movies. Rest in peace, Mr. Liotta. . .you will be missed.
