On a cinematic level, Ray Liotta is a veteran who has starred in a diverse array of films. Though its hard to beat the iconic impact of Goodfellas, Liotta has carved out an array of indelible work in such films as Narc, No Escape, and the highly underrated Killing Them Softly. Shades of Blue was a completely different working experience for Liotta, as he and the ensemble had a ton of material to memorize on a given weekend!
“We would do two episodes at a time, so it was extremely challenging to bring depth and dimension to things that – you had an idea what was happening because you know the character and you kind of know where the story is going,” said Liotta. “I just loved doing it. I would do a 13 episode (series) again (with this character). Especially now with the way the business is.”
