GOODFELLAS star Ray Liotta is taking his hard-man reputation to the small screen - he's to voice a villain on an episode of children's cartoon Spongebob Squarepants.
The 53 year old will lend his voice to the leader of the "dangerous Bubble Poppin' Boys" gang for a special 30-minute Nickelodeon TV special.
According to network bosses, the episode sees SpongBob "wander the ocean, a stranger in his own pants" when he finds himself in a rough area of New Kelp City, where he comes face to face with Liotta's character.
The SpongeBob Squarepants special will air in the U.S. on 13 October (08).
