Dennis Lehane, ‘Black Bird’ director and writer, mentioned during an interview with Variety that Liotta ‘meant everything to us’, and that it was his dream to work with the renowned actor.

Greg Kinnear, the co-star in the series, mentioned how Liotta was ‘a magnificent actor and a magnificent person’, saying how the Hollywood actor was extraordinary in a way that he was knocking people out. The Apple TV+ show features Taron Egerton as Jimmy Keene and Paul Walter Hauser as Larry Hall.
