Therefore, Liotta's son in 大毒枭 (2001) was likely distributing cocaine to Henry Hill, the real-life character Liotta played in 好家伙 (1990).
  • British rock band Linoleum recorded a song called "Ray Liotta" (on their 1997 album 'Dissent').

  • Ray's adoptive father was the son of Italian immigrants, and Ray's adoptive mother was the daughter of Scottish parents. In a 2001 interview with Smoke Magazine, Liotta said that his biological parents' ancestry is "mostly Scottish with a bit of Italian." In 2006, he tracked down his biological mother and learned that his biological father was not Italian at all.
  • When he was six months old, he was adopted from a Newark, New Jersey, orphanage by Mary Miller (Edgar) and Alfred Liotta, the owners of a chain of automotive-supply stores. One of his earliest memories is of helping his parents pick out Linda, his sister, at an orphanage when he was three years old.
