Charlie Day Regrets That Ray Liotta Will Never See Fool’s Paradise

For the time that Liotta was granted during his lifetime and career, he managed to commit some incredible performances to celluloid, from Jonathan Demme’s “Something Wild” to Noah Baumbach’s “Marriage Story.” Judging by the trailer for “Fool’s Paradise” and the general premise, the film feels like a throwback to classic Hollywood stories about the ins and outs of the business. Liotta as an overzealous film producer sounds like a role that could potentially go down as one of his best. Day certainly seems to think so. “He delivers a performance that is, in my mind … I won’t say it’s ‘Goodfellas’ good, but it’s Ray Liotta good. It’s up to his standards of what he can do well,” he gushed. 

If Liotta’s performance in “Fool’s Paradise” does wind up being one of his best roles, Day and the rest of the cast and crew will have to accept all the accolades on his behalf. “My biggest regret is that Ray is not going to get to see the audience see him,” Day told Geist on “Sunday Sitdown.” “He was just a really driven, committed, serious-about-his-craft guy, and I feel lucky he’s in the movie,” added Day. 

For a story centered around Day becoming an accidental movie star, having a bonafide acting legend like Liotta was something Day cherished during his first experience behind the camera. “I just want to share it,” he said. “It’s like a child. I’m super-proud of it. I’m ready for it to go out in the world. And if people don’t like the child, well, you know, they can suck it.”

“Fools Paradise” is set to be released on May 12.
