| RAY LIOTTA (Henry Oak) has carved out an impressive filmography of both dramatic and comedic roles while working with the most diverse actors of the last twenty years and the top directors in the industry. |
Beginning with his Golden Globe-nominated performance in Jonathan Demmes edgy Something Wild, Liotta then went on to portray the unique role of medical student caring for his mentally challenged brother in Dominick and Eugene. He followed with a dynamic performance as the soul-searching ghost, Shoeless Joe Jackson, in the Academy Award-nominated Field of Dreams.
Perhaps the film that brought Liotta his most widespread acclaim is Martin Scorceses Goodfellas. Portraying the tortured half-Sicilian, half-Irish Henry Hill opposite such actors as Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci, Liotta not only solidified his status as an actor but also his widely applauded performance helped garner the film an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture.
Now, with over 25 feature films under his belt, Liotta has shown his acting diversity in comedies such as Corrina, Corrina, with Whoopi Goldberg and Heartbreakers, with Gene Hackman and Sigourney Weaver, along with thrillers such as Unlawful Entry, with Kurt Russell and Madeleine Stowe and the futuristic prison drama, No Escape. Most recently, Liotta appeared in Ted Demmes Blow, with Johnny Depp, Nick Cassavetes John Q, with Denzel Washington and Robert Duvall and Ridley Scotts worldwide box-office hit, Hannibal, opposite Anthony Hopkins and Julianne Moore.
Liotta recently completed production on I.D., which reunites Liotta with Cop Land director James Mangold. The exciting crime/thriller, scheduled for release in April, also stars John Cusack and Amanda Peet.
In addition to his very busy film schedule, Liotta has also received acclaim for his work on the small screen, garnering a Screen Actors Guild nomination for Best Actor for his portrayal of Frank Sinatra in HBOs miniseries The Rat Pack.
In 1999, Liotta founded Tiara Blu Films with his wife, actress/producer Michelle Grace, and producer Diane Nabatoff. Since then, in addition to Narc, the company has produced a pilot for the HBO series Baseball Wives, which was recently picked up for 13 episodes to air in 2003.
