Martin Scorsese regrets not working with Ray Liotta after ‘Goodfellas’

'I wanted to work with him again:' Martin Scorsese mourns Ray Liotta
Scorsese regrets over never reuniting with the actor.

Martin Scorsese mourns the late actor Ray Liotta. He published a heartfelt tribute to Liotta, whose most remarkable role was in Scorsese’s masterpiece Goodfellas.

“We had many plans to work together again but the timing was always off, or the project wasn’t quite right. I regret that now,” Scorsese writes.

“When I watched Ray as the divorce lawyer in ‘Marriage Story’ – he’s genuinely scary in the role, which is precisely why he’s so funny – I remember feeling that I wanted to work with him again at this point in his life, to explore the gravity in his presence, so different from the young, sprightly actor he was when I met him.”

“I wish I’d had the chance to see him just once more, too – to tell him just how much the work we did together meant to me,” Scorsese sais in The Guardian. “But maybe he knew that. I hope so.”
