Ray Liotta dead: Hollywood reacts to death of Goodfellas star

Hollywood tributes are pouring in for the “Goodfellas” actor, who has died aged 67.

“Goodfellas” star Ray Liotta has been one of the most recognizable faces in cinema for the past three decades, working with some of the industry’s biggest actors and directors throughout his career. After his sudden death at the age of 67 in the Dominican Republic (where he was filming the upcoming movie Dangerous Waters), many of his best colleagues took to social media to mourn the legendary actor.

After bursting onto the scene in Goodfellas, Liotta followed up his iconic portrayal in the Martin Scorsese film with countless excellent character roles. He won a 2005 Primetime Emmy for a guest appearance on ER and starred in acclaimed films until his death. Recent hits include Noah Baumbach’s “Marriage Story” and David Chase’s “Sopranos” prequel “The Many Saints of Newark,” in which Liotta excelled in two different roles.

Liotta had several projects on the line before his death, including Dangerous Waters and other films like The Substance and April 29, 1992. He had also completed several upcoming projects that will be released in the near future, including Charlie Day’s directorial debut El Tonto, Elizabeth Banks’ aptly titled Cocaine Bear, and the upcoming Dennis Lehane miniseries Black Bird.

Liotta is survived by his daughter Karsen Liotta and was engaged to be married to Jacy Nittolo before he died.

When asked if his legacy was defined by his role in Goodfellas, Liotta famously said, “If you have a movie that people remember, that’s great. If you have two, that’s awesome.” Judging by celebrity reactions to his death, it seems Liotta has a lot more than two.

Hollywood stars highlighted his performances in Goodfellas, Field of Dreams, The Many Saints of Newark and many other films as they mourned his death. One thing was made clear by the overwhelming support he received online: Ray Liotta will not be forgotten anytime soon.

Read on to find testimonies from various of Liotta’s Hollywood colleagues, some who had worked with him and others who were just admirers, who shared their reactions to his death via Twitter.
