Ray Liotta should replace Tom Cruise in everything.

Goodfellas — Producer Irwin Winkler, speaking in an upcoming GQ interview centered around the mob classic’s twenty year anniversary, reveals that the roles played by Ray Liotta and Lorraine Bracco, at the behest of studio chiefs, almost went to Tom Cruise and Madonna. Were that the case, Winkler didn’t mention whether Morgan Freeman was in talks to play the President who would successfully help avoid what would have been that massive, massive disaster.
