Ray Liotta dies at 67

Ray Liotta, who became a gangster-movie icon in "Goodfellas" and brought a old-time baseball legend back to life in "Field of Dreams," has died. He was 67.

His publicist Jennifer Allen confirmed to USA TODAY that Liotta died in his sleep in the Dominican Republic while filming the new movie "Dangerous Waters." His fiancée Jacy Nittolo was on location with him.

Born in Newark, New Jersey, the actor had a breakthrough role in Martin Scorsese's mob classic "Goodfellas" playing real-life criminal Henry Hill opposite Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci and often was featured in crime films, including the recent "The Sopranos" spinoff "The Many Saints of Newark." In 2021, Liotta told USA TODAY that he turned down a part in the original HBO "Sopranos" show because "it just didn't feel right," though series creator David Chase said it was worth the wait to work with him.
