66 - Say Bye-Bye to the Bad Guy
He's played roles as diverse as Shoeless Joe Jackson and Frank Sinatra, but ask most people about Ray Liotta and what they'll most remember is when he "always wanted to be a gangster."

With two upcoming feature films - one produced by his own company - and a highly-touted psychological drama for HBO, he may finally get his chance. And whatever happens, he'll still have plenty of work to support his cigar hobby.

Revolution in Cuba, war in Nicaragua, bombs in Miami, and the invasion of counterfeit cigars - Jorge Padron and his father, Jose Orlando Padron have weathered it all, and now stand firmly poised at the top of the world along with their legendary Nicaraguan brand.
