Since the beginning of his feature film career, RAY LIOTTA has managed to
burn indelible images into our minds. These performances --- half mesmerizingly
demonic and half-noble, virtuous and heroic --- already seem to span an entire
globe of human emotions and behavior.

opposite Gretchen Mol and Joseph Fiennes.
Liotta was also recently seen in critically-acclaimed The Rat Pack,
directed by Rob Cohen. This intimate behind-the-scenes look at four of the most

leader of the "Rat Pack," Frank Sinatra; a performance which garnered
him a SAG nomination for best actor. The film aired on HBO and was nominated for
an Emmy for Outstanding Made for TV Movie.
Liotta also starred in Phoenix with Anjelica Houston and Anthony La
Paglia as well as Copland opposite Sylvester Stallone, Robert De Niro and

performance in the latter film.
