RIP: Ray Liotta

He died in his sleep while in the Dominican Republic.

CNN

Ray Liotta, the actor known for his roles in "Field of Dreams" and the Martin Scorsese mob classic "Goodfellas," has died.

He was 67.
"Ray was working on a project in the Dominican Republic called 'Dangerous Waters' when he passed. He passed in his sleep. He is survived by his daughter, Karsen and his fiancée, Jacy Nittolo," his publicist Jennifer Allen told CNN.
Born in Newark, New Jersey, Liotta was the adopted son of Alfred and Mary Liotta, who also adopted a daughter, Linda.
He attended Union High School where he excelled at sports and went on to attend the University of Miami. He studied drama and was cast in his first play, "Cabaret."
Following his college graduation, Liotta moved to New York City where he got work in commercials and was cast as Joey Perrini on the daytime soap opera "Another World," in which he appeared from 1978 to 1981.
His performance as crazed ex-con Ray Sinclair in the 1986 film "Something Wild" proved to be a breakthrough role for the actor.

Wow, only six years older than me, damn. Way too young.

Of course, being a GTA-maniac, he was awesome in VC. Lots of tributes to him at the GTA site I go to.

R.I.P.
