The David Guetta Music Video You Likely Didn't Realize Starred Ray Liotta

Ray Liotta's devastating death is sending shockwaves through the entertainment industry as the world mourns the sudden loss of the late 67-year-old actor. Liotta, whose career started in the 1970s, reportedly died in his sleep in the Dominican Republic, where he was filming an upcoming movie called "Dangerous Waters" (via Deadline). The New Jersey-born actor will be remembered for roles in movies like "Field of Dreams" (1989), "The Many Saints of Newark" (2021), "Marriage Story" (2019), and most notably as mobster Henry Hill in Martin Scorcese's 1990 crime epic "Goodfellas." 

All in all, Liotta had 126 acting credits on his IMDb page at the time of his death, including six upcoming projects he either completed or was filming. Fans hoping to catch Liotta in one of his now-posthumous roles can catch him on the upcoming Apple TV+ series "Black Bird," which premieres on July 8 (via Variety). 

Liotta had a number of interesting TV roles, including a hosting stint on "Saturday Night Live" for a January 2003 episode with musical guest the Donnas. And in the later years of Liotta's career, he even forayed into the world of music videos, with one of the more notable DJs and record producers of the last several decades.

David Guetta's Lovers on The Sun music video features Ray Liotta as a villainous cowboy

In 2014, Ray Liotta starred in French DJ and record producer's David Guetta's spaghetti western-themed music video for the single "Lovers on The Sun." The music video depicts Liotta as a villainous cowboy who encounters the video's heroes, a woman described only as "The Sexy" and a man described as "The Good" in an apparent send-up of "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly." At the video's start, Liotta's villain and his henchmen have "The Good" tied up. Liotta's character even shoots a can off the top of the head of "The Good." When "The Sexy" arrives, she appears to pocket the sun itself and makes an escape with "The Good," resulting in a horse chase sequence and romantic scene between the two heroes. They wake up to find that Liotta and the villains have tracked them down. This culminates in a stand-off in which "The Sexy" again uses the sun to melt the villain's guns, rendering "The Good" and "The Sexy" the heroes of the day.

According to Static, Marc Klasfield directed the "Lovers on The Sun" music video. The song features American singer Sam Martin and was co-produced by Swedish DJ Avicii.
