Texas Rising (2015)

Ray Liotta as "Lorca"

This historical drama explores the fight for an independent Texas that occurred following the conclusion of the Battle of the Alamo. Gen. Sam Houston leads a ragtag group of Texas Rangers into battle against Mexican Gen. Santa Anna. Houston and the Rangers fight seemingly insurmountable odds to overtake the opponent and gain independence. The series comes from the same team behind Emmy-winning miniseries "Hatfields & McCoys" and, like that program, features Emmy nominee Bill Paxton, who plays Houston, in a prominent role.

Something Wild (1986)

Ray Liotta as "Ray Sinclair"

Free-spirited Lulu (Melanie Griffith) sets her sights on uptight banker Charles (Jeff Daniels) for a little bit of fun. Their relationship starts off simple enough with a tryst and some modest adventure, but Lulu wants Charles to pose as her husband at a high school reunion. It seems harmless enough to Charles, but that all changes when Lulu's actual husband, Ray (Ray Liotta), confronts them at the event. Understandably, Ray isn't content to let Charles and Lulu ride off into the sunset.
