Goodfellas: Ray Liotta and Christopher Serrone

As far back as the late Henry Hill could remember, he always wanted to be a gangster. Thus begins Martin Scorsese's 1990 masterpiece, robbed at the Oscars by Dances With Wolves (yeah, let that sink in). In the film, Henry is predominantly played by the ever-slimy, always intimidating Ray Liotta. But for the first chunk of the movie, which includes some of its best scenes (the mailman getting his head stuck in the oven, Paulie exclaiming "you broke your cherry," the list goes on and on) Henry is played by Christopher Serrone, who is a good match for Liotta, not only because of his blue eyes, but also because of his subdued innocence (very soon to be lost) and flawed nice guy appeal.
