I haven't done too many R.I.P posts the last few years. Between the sociopath in the White House, the pandemic, unrest and war, I wanted FH to be a break from daily stressors. This week, that is needed even more than ever. I did however want to note the passing of actor Ray Liotta.
Rarely the star, Liotta still managed to shine in almost every project and role he took on. I went to the movies at least once a week in the 90's and 2000's and it felt like Liotta was in almost every second or third movie I saw. I'm not sure when my crush began, it may have been in 1992's Unlawful Entry. According to those who knew him, Liotta often played against type. In real life, he is described as incredibly sweet and incredibly kind. R.I.P Mr. Liotta
He and the costume designer came to the back of the theatre to try on a costume. They stood about five feet from me and the guy playing Billy took off his jeans as if he was a lone and slipped on his costume. When he took off the costume, he stood there in just his baby blue briefs, waiting for stage hand to bring more costumes for him to try on. The stage hand was slow, giving me close to five minutes to enjoy the baby blue view.
