    Wow. I never would have guessed that he was 67. I think the last thing I saw him in was No Sudden Move.

    RIP

    i was watching the new movie based on the Soprano's, "The many saints of Newark", and he looked older than i had thought he was, which i thought he was already into his mid to high 70's, even though, make up plays an important part in the movies. but he did look "rough" to me as both characters he played.

    this is him in 2016

    but 67 is still a wee bit too young to pass away....

    must have been a health issue, that he kept secret.

    i liked ALL his movies, he played his roles very well.

    Yeah I forgot about that movie. He does look bad in that picture. I was looking at photos of him and he has changed more than I remember.

    There was a woman who I went to church with growing up. She wore one of those plastic hair bonnet things that old women wore in the rain so I thought she was in her 70s back then. Seeing her occasionally over the last 50 years I thought she looked basically the same (still wearing that rain bonnet) but when she died (I think she was in her 80s so I was way off when I was a kid - but in my defense she was a widow and hung out with the other widows who were all past 70) I saw the old photos and definitely saw the differences.

    some people age gracefully...others just age.

    here in the states, high profile people, movie and tv stars get a facelift, Botox, etc. i have seen many of my favorite foreign actresses that were gorgeous when they were on the big screen...but they do not (seemingly) believe in face lifts, or body tucks...so they look as old and decrepit as say Keith Richards.....who looks like he's 1,000 years old.

    i think drinking, smoking, maybe some drug usage, speeds up the aging process in "SOME" people.

    but i have no solid proof, but, when i read that this one or that one is an alcoholic, heavy smoker, what other conclusion can i jump to..??

    He also did some good tequila commercials where he had that look on his face that says “Don’t BS me!!”



    R.I.P. Mr. Liotta-next hometime I’ll have round of 1800 in your memory!

    When I read about it, said he was on location for a film, and passed away quietly in his sleep.

    Shame, he had quite a few good ones.

    Field of Dreams, Goodfellas, Blow, John Q., and yes even what some would consider not good...Muppets from Space and Muppets Most Wanted, Operation Dumbo Drop(with Danny Glover and Dennis Leary) , and we can't forget Roadhogs. Well, maybe we can..

    Don't judge...the muppets are funnier then hell, as an adult. ;)

    Especially the two old guys. They crack me up with the stuff they say.
