It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Ray Liotta, remembered fondly for his appearances as Henry Hill as well as his voiceover work for famous Grand Theft Auto: Vice City protagonist Tommy Vercetti. Deadline (via Rockstar Intel) reports that Liotta succumbed in his slumber during shooting for Dangerous Waters in the Dominican Republic. The exact reason for his death is yet unclear.
The Actor Was Shooting For His Upcoming Movie
The Substance, starring Demi Moore and Liotta, had been scheduled for release sometime next year. He is survived by his fiancée Jacy Nittolo and his daughter Karsen. Ray Liotta is most known for his performance as Henry Hill in the Martin Scorcese’s feature Goodfellas, in which he co-starred with actors like Robert De Niro as well as Joe Pesci. Narc, Field of Dreams, Something Wild, Revolver, and Marriage Story are just a few of the films in which Liotta has appeared.

If you’re a fan of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, you’ll recognize Liotta as Tommy Vercetti. The famous figure is still regarded as among the most recognizable characters in video games, not just in the Grand Theft Auto franchise. Whilst his part as Vercetti in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2’s zombie campaign was his most notable, The Goodfellas alum also lent his vocal to the character Billy Handsome.
Poll results show that many of this year’s most-played videogames are those that were launched prior to 2010. There was not a single title produced this year that made it into this year’s ranking.
It’s hardly surprising to see big franchises like Grand Theft Auto V, Minecraft, and Epic Game’s Fortnite: Battle Royale there. GTA 5 and Fortnite seem to have a stronghold on the gamer audience despite the popularity of Pokemon Legends: Arceus, Elden Ring, and Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.
