"You want to do as many different genres as you can and that's what I've been doing. I've done movies with the Muppets. I did Sinatra. I did good guys and bad guys. I did a movie with an elephant. I decided that I was here to try different parts and do different things. That's what it’s really all about. That's what a career should be."

Raymond Allen Liotta (December 18, 1954 — May 26, 2022) was an American actor, film producer, and voice actor. He was known for a wide array of roles ranging from Shoeless Joe Jackson in Field of Dreams to a psychopathic cop in Unlawful Entry to a talking bee. Gamers may recognize him as the legendary Tommy Vercetti from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

Liotta passed away in his sleep in the Dominican Republic on May 26, 2022, at age 67. He was filming for a new motion picture, Dangerous Waters, at the time. Less than a year later, an autopsy revealed that the cause of his death was a combination of respiratory insufficiency, pulmonary edema, and heart failure.
