Ray Liotta Net Worth – Ray Liotta is a 14 million dollars net worth American actor, producer, and director. After starring in Martin Scorsese’s famous mafia film GoodFellas, Liotta established himself as a legendary figure. Apart from this one-of-a-kind performance, Ray Liotta has had great success in cinema and television.
Raymond Allen Liotta was born in Newark, New Jersey, on December 18th, 1954. As a youngster, Liotta and his sister were adopted by American-Italian parents. He subsequently located his biological mother and found that he is primarily Scottish in origin. Liotta and his sister were reared in a Catholic home, although with little church attendance.
Liotta attended the University of Miami after graduating from Union High School in 1973. He studied acting and participated in the college’s musical performances while pursuing a degree in fine arts.
During his undergraduate years, Ray Liotta began acting in plays. He came to New York after a bachelor’s from college with a degree in Fine Arts and securing a part in the soap opera Another World. He worked in television and movies until making his Broadway debut in 2004 as Match, a Stephen Belber drama.
Liotta speaks with a New York-Italian accent, which is odd since he is not Italian, but he grew up hearing that dialect after being abandoned at an orphanage as a kid. With his accent, greased back hair, trademark insane laugh, and physical agility, Liotta can portray violent gangsters on film alongside genre elder statesmen such as Joe Pesci, Al Pacino, James Gandolfini, and Robert De Niro.
This has aided Liotta in obtaining a plethora of parts as gangsters and corrupt police since the early 1990s since he is an excellent fit for the character. Additionally, his fantastically gangster-sounding voice has landed him employment as a narrator, having narrated not one but two films on the Italian mafia: 2005’s Inside the Mafia on National Geographic and 2015’s The Making of the Mob on ABC.
The actor has even been given parts as gangsters in computer games, and he will also star in the forthcoming Sopranos prequel, The Many Saints of Newark. In 2012 alone, Liotta appeared in two films (Killing Them Softly and The Iceman) in which he portrayed a mobster and one movie in which he showed a corrupt policeman (The Place Beyond The Pines).
Ray Liotta relocated to New York City after his graduation from college to pursue an acting career. He began building contacts and booking an agent while working as a bartender at a New York theatre. From 1978 through 1981, Liotta achieved early television fame as Joey Perrini in the soap series Another World.
