The Heartbreaking Death Of Actor Ray Liotta

A Hollywood legend has died. "Goodfellas" actor Ray Liotta died in his sleep in the Dominican Republic. He was 67 years old. The New Jersey native, known for roles in movies like "Something Wild," "Unlawful Entry," "Blow" and more recently, "Hubie Halloween," was reportedly on location filming the now-chillingly-titled film "Dangerous Waters" (via Deadline). TMZ reports no foul play is suspected.

Sadly, it seems the star was staying in good shape and keeping busy, with Liotta having been photographed working out in 2020 (via Daily Mail). He also had several projects in the works, in addition to "Dangerous Waters," including two films.

The star told People in November about his time in Hollywood, "It's weird how this business works, because I've definitely had a career that's up and down. For some reason, I've been busier this year than I have in all the years that I've been doing this. And I still feel I'm not there yet. I just think there's a lot more."

Meanwhile, over on Twitter, celebrity friends and fans were beside themselves at the unexpected news that the star, who is survived by a grown daughter, Karsen, and his fiancée, Jacy Nittolo, was gone.
