40 Crazy Behind-the-Scenes Secrets of The Sopranos
Ray Liotta was offered a role but turned it down
…Speaking of Goodfellas cast members! One of the biggest of them all was almost on The Sopranos, too! Liotta was approached by Chase to star in the series in an undisclosed role but decided against it. He wanted to focus on his film career and not get bogged down by a TV show. He never revealed which role he was offered but we have to assume that it was on the smaller side.

We wonder if he regrets not starring on one of the biggest shows of all time!
