American actor, Ray Liotta, best known for portraying mobster Henry Hill in “Goodfellas”, has died at age 67.
Liotta died in his sleep in the Dominican Republic, where he was filming the movie “Dangerous Waters,” according to his publicist, Jennifer Allen. No foul play is suspected, said Allen, who said Liotta’s fiancée, Jacy Nittolo, was with him on the island.
In an acting career that spanned four decades, Liotta was notable for roles like Ray Sinclair in Jonathan Demme’s “Something Wild” (1986). The role earned him his first Golden Globe nomination.
The actor went on to star as baseball player Shoeless Joe Jackson in the Kevin Costner-starrer “Field of Dreams” (1989) and as the corrupt cop Matt Wozniak on the 2016-18 NBC cop drama “Shades of Blues” alongside Jennifer Lopez.
Liotta had one daughter with his ex-wife, Michelle Grace.
