Second chance for Hollywood legend Ray Liotta in ‘Sopranos’ spinoff
Accomplished Hollywood actor Ray Liotta stars as patriarch gangster ‘Hollywood Dick’ Moltisanti (and twin brother Sal) in The Sopranos prequel film The Many Saints of Newark.
Liotta already had a relationship with the franchise, he told Deborah Knight, having been approached to join a later season of The Sopranos but turning the role down.
“It just wasn’t the right thing at that time.
“But there was just something about [producer David Chase’s] persona, his intensity, his commitment that really touched me.
“They didn’t even want to meet me on this, and I talked to my agent, I said ‘I’d like to see if there’s anything I can do in this’.
“They finally said ‘yes’ … I went, I talked, and I conquered.”
