If you cast me, I will die.

"died in his sleep" makes me think heart attack or stroke is a likely reason, though I guess accidental drug OD b/c of sleeping meds or mixing meds and alcohol is always a possibility

Guess he'll be parking Cadillacs for all those dead mobsters now.

RIP

When it comes to a lot of celebrity deaths, I have to stop and think what movie to watch or album to listen to in memory of them.

This one is easy. It can only be that Goodfellas sequence. I don't even need to say which one.

In Ray Liotta's memory, I will drive to Far Rockaway to get my lucky hat.

Is this a joke? A typo? Or is that what they called it in the movie?

Wildly underrated movie, and he was perfect casting for that particular role.

Tommy was just talkin' about this, what happened?
 
2022-05-26 12:21:43 PM  
He definitely wasn't on my list for this year. Great actor. Boyish good looks that turned into a face like 100 meters of rough road.
 
2022-05-26 12:22:00 PM  
Sure he "died in his sleep" suddenly... that's what they want you to believe instead of it being a mob hit.
 
2022-05-26 12:22:14 PM  
This is a huge blow, it looks like there was no escape from the grim reaper. I'm kind of surprised that he wasn't killed by a bunch of wild hogs.

/I loved listening to Ray trash-talking as Tommy in GTA:VC, even though he wasn't allowed to say the F-word
//"I did your wife, you poor bastard!"
 
2022-05-26 12:28:28 PM  
He's gone to that big home in the sky to get his farking shine box.
 
2022-05-26 12:28:58 PM  
He died doing what he loved: living.
 
2022-05-26 12:29:31 PM  
Oh no... just a few days ago... someone posted a short vid on TikTok of him on that movie set and i was thinking he looked really good... really healthy..... better than i'd seen him in recent years.

I tried to give you consolation
When your old man had let you down
Like a fool, I fell in love with you
Turned my whole world upside down

Is this heaven?
 
2022-05-26 12:32:11 PM  
We have no idea that he died on the *movie set*, Subster, it just says he died in the D.R.

For all we know it could have been a hotel room, with a regional type of Tiburón, Wait until the proper info comes out, ya ghouls.
 
2022-05-26 12:32:22 PM  
Well crap, I liked most everything he was in.

Waves goodbye as he strolls into the corn...
 
2022-05-26 12:32:44 PM  
It sucks.  But, we're all gonna go sometime and that's not a bad way to do it.  Go about your day, climb into bed, and nothing.  Spent a lot of time around the Assisted Living my mother was in and they make it seem all fun and games but getting rolled down the hall to exercise to wave your arms around weakly while not remebering the names of your kids isn't how I want to spend my days.

No, it's Iowa. Heaven's just a short walk from the Kenmore T Station.

Considering what he did to his body... That's not too bad. My dad only made it about 5 years longer and he did a lot less to his.

He was a helluva actor. One of his best roles, I think, was as the father in Blow.

So this is new from the CDC. If he had COVID, it's super possible he had a stroke or PE in his sleep. 1.5 Years after severe COVID, I was coming home from work. Sat down on the bed to take off my shoes when it felt like someone slid a bayonet just under my right shoulder blade into my back. 

Forced myself to breathe, coughed up blood clots the next day. PCP said that I just survived a Pulmonary Embolism, Long Covid related. 48 shots of Lovenox in my stomach over one week, then six months of Warfarin / Coumadin. 

My best friend's brother had a PE in his sleep and died. I imagine we're going to start hearing a lot more about what's in that chart, above.

Ah that sucks. He was one of those guys who was solid in everything he was in, trash or not

CSB: My 8th grade homeroom teacher was Ray Liotta's cousin, same last name even. Though being in middle school at the time, I had no idea WTF Ray Liotta was when she mentioned it

Goodfellas has pretty much become a yearly rewatch at this point.

Blood relative?  He was adopted, and his biological family were not great people.  He was raised by a loving family and he never regretted being adopted.
