Default Why you don't see Ray Liotta onscreen anymore

https://www.looper.com/153032/why-yo...creen-anymore/

Quote:
"You're gonna like this guy. He's all right. He's a good fella." Ray Liotta reads the narration as gangster Henry Hill in 1990's Goodfellas while he and mentor Jimmy (Robert De Niro) wait to hear from Tommy (Joe Pesci). They believe the volatile Tommy is about to become a made man an almost untouchable member of the mafia. They eventually learn they've been waiting for nothing. The ceremony is a trap, and Tommy is killed in retaliation for the unsanctioned murder of made man Billy Batts (Frank Vincent) along with years of other violent transgressions. Henry and Jimmy think they're at the beginning of a bright future, only to have their hopes annihilated in possibly the most horrific manner you could imagine.

It's kind of dramatic to compare the death of Tommy DeVito to any actor's career, much less that of Ray Liotta, who's been working regularly in television and film since the late '70s, but it's apt considering the trajectory you'd expect from Liotta after an instant classic like Goodfellas. The film scored a ton of awards season attention including a half-dozen Oscar nominations and one win, for Pesci as Best Supporting Actor. Unfortunately, because of luck, typecasting, some regrettable casting choices on Liotta's part and at least a couple of public gaffes Liotta never became the in-demand leading man we expected. Keep reading to learn why you may not have seen much of Ray Liotta lately.
