I met Hill during the museum’s grand opening celebration in February. we had the little terror about coming him, formed upon the difficult impression I’d seen in GoodFellas. What we encountered was the the tiny male who acted kindly as well as invited me to lay down. Chain smoking as well as celebration steadily, he was happy to speak about his past. we asked him if Ray Liotta’s description of him in the film was accurate. He responded: “I was the genuine scumbag.” Also fasten the review was the grandson of Meyer Lansky, the important mobster as well as Vegas Kingpin. He as well as Hill talked about gangster-themed TV projects they were pursuing.
No word if Hill’s will come to fruition.
