Raymond Allen Liotta (December 18, 1954 – May 26, 2022) was an American actor and producer. His best-known roles include Shoeless Joe Jackson in Field of Dreams (1989), Henry Hill in Goodfellas (1990), and Tommy Vercetti in the video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (2002). His other roles included Ray Sinclair in Something Wild (1986), for which he received a Golden Globe nomination, as well as starring in Unlawful Entry (1992), Cop Land (1997), Hannibal (2001), Blow (2001), John Q (2002), Identity (2003), Observe and Report (2009), Killing Them Softly (2012), The Place Beyond the Pines (2012), and Marriage Story (2019), as well as the drama series Shades of Blue (2016–2018). Raymond Allen Liotta was born in Newark, New Jersey, on December 18, 1954. Having been abandoned at an orphanage, he was adopted at the age of six months by township clerk Mary (Edgar) and auto-parts store owner Alfred Liotta. Mary was of Scottish descent. Alfred, the son of Italian immigrants, was a personnel director and president of a local Democratic Party club. His adoptive parents each unsuccessfully ran for local office; he recalled attending parades to hand out flyers for his father's run. Liotta has a sister, Linda, who is also adopted. He has said that he knew he was adopted as a young child and presented a show-and-tell report on it for kindergarten. He hired a private detective to locate his biological mother in the 2000s, and subsequently learned from her that he was mostly of Scottish descent. He has one biological sister, one biological half-brother, and five biological half-sisters. Liotta grew up in a Roman Catholic household in Union, New Jersey, although his family was not especially religious. They attended church and he received first communion and was confirmed, but the family did not pray much. He occasionally used prayer in his daily life. He graduated from Union High School in 1973. Liotta then graduated from the University of Miami, where he studied acting and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1978. He performed in musicals such as Cabaret, Dames at Sea, Oklahoma, and Sound of Music during his time there. Liotta married actress and producer Michelle Grace in February 1997 after they had met at a baseball game, where her former husband Mark Grace was playing for the Chicago Cubs. They had a daughter together before divorcing in 2004. From his experience shooting the Western Texas Rising, Liotta continued horseback riding and said in September 2014, "I was obsessed with riding horses. I love it now. I've never had a hobby. It might be my new hobby." In February 2007, he was charged for driving under the influence after crashing his Cadillac Escalade into two parked vehicles in Pacific Palisades. He pleaded no contest. On an episode of Jay Leno's Garage, Ray Liotta revealed that Nancy and Tina Sinatra, daughters of Frank Sinatra, once sent Liotta a horse's head in the mail. The joke was in response to Liotta passing on playing their late father in a miniseries they were working on, only to have Liotta play him in the HBO television film The Rat Pack. Liotta reportedly died in his sleep, aged 67, on May 26, 2022 in the Dominican Republic, during the filming of new movie Dangerous Waters. At the time of his death, he was engaged to Jacy Nittolo.
