At this point, if you’re an actor even tangentially associated with playing a wiseguy you’re sitting by your phone waiting to hear from Martin Scorsese‘s The Irishman or David Chase‘s The Many Saints of Newark. (Everyone else is getting cast in Dune so it’s fine.) Ray Liotta—who you could say is a little more than tangentially associated with the mobster genre—has answered Chase’s call, with Deadline reporting the Goodfellas star has joined Chase’s prequel to the landmark HBO series, The Sopranos.
Here’s what the actor said in a statement about joining the project:
David - Chase - Alan - Taylor - Saints
“I am thrilled to be working with David Chase and Alan Taylor on The Many Saints of Newark…David’s talent is unmatched and the directing of Alan Taylor makes this even more exciting. I respect them both immensely and look forward to making this special project with New Line.”
Thanks, Ray, very informative. Of course, without Liotta’s turn in Goodfellas, there may not have been...
