Lots Of Hollywood stars have actually been commemorating veteran star Ray Liotta after the Goodfellas star’s unexpected death. Kevin Costner, who co-starred with Liotta in the hit movie Field of Dreams, signed up with lots of others with a homage published to his Twitter account. Costner consisted of a video of a scene he showed Liotta in Field of Dreams while exposing that it was an unscripted minute that simply occurred to be completely photographed, as if it was a present from above.

“Devastated to hear the news of Ray Liotta’s passing,” Costner states. “While he leaves an incredible legacy, he’ll always be ‘Shoeless Joe Jackson’ in my heart. What happened that moment in the film was real. God gave us that stunt. Now God has Ray.”


Launched in 1989, Field of Dreams informs the story of a farmer (Costner) who develops a ball park on his land, drawing in the ghosts of baseball legends from the past. This significantly consists of Liotta as “Shoeless Joe Jackson,” as the movie is based upon the initial W.P. Kinsella book Shoeless Joe. The movie was a big hit at package office and was chosen for numerous Oscars. With sustaining appeal, it was reported last fall that a Field of Dreams reboot remains in the works as a television series at NBCUniversal’s streaming service Peacock.

Ray Liotta Was Still Working Often

The news of Ray Liotta’s death came as a big shock for both fans and good friends as there hasn’t been any obvious indication leading up to his death. He had actually been on place in the Dominican Republic to shoot his next movie, Harmful Waters, when he apparently passed away in his sleep at the age of 67. It’s unclear how much video footage he had actually striven Harmful Waters however Liotta will be appearing in lots of other movies and television shows posthumously.

In July, Liotta will appear in significant function in the Apple television+ series Black Bird. The series stars Liotta as a law enforcement officer whose drug dealing kid winds up at a penitentiary for the criminally crazy where he befriends a serial killer. Black Bird showrunner Dennis Lehane launched a declaration after Liotta’s death in which he specified it was an honor to have actually dealt with the famous star.

“It was, rather actually, the conclusion of a long-lasting dream to deal with Ray Liotta,” Lehane said, via Variety. “From the minute I saw him burn out the screen, his co-stars, and the back of the theater in Something Wild, I discovered him the most electrical American star of his generation. At the heart of a Ray Liotta efficiency was a duality that he couldn’t rather control; I presume it wasn’t mindful. It felt, rather, like something that was secured his DNA. When his character was threatening and hazardous, he still couldn’t completely conceal the sweet little young boy inside. When the character was captivating, even caring, you might still feel something unpredictable roiling beneath.”

Black Bird will premiere on July 8, 2022, on Apple television+.
