Ray Liotta hopes "Hannibal" will be his comeback film.
Liotta plays a Justice Department official out to sabotage the career of FBI agent Clarice Starling in the sequel to "The Silence of The Lambs."
"I definitely hit a lull that I'm coming out of, no question about it. I think it's just the nature of the business, the nature of the beast," he told reporters recently.
"You always hear about the ups and downs of a career, and luckily the down wasn't too down but luckily the highs haven't been too high, either."
The 45-year-old actor starred in 1990's "Goodfellas," which was nominated for a best picture Oscar. He went on to make "Operation Dumbo Drop" in 1995 and "Muppets From Space" in 1999.
