New 30 for 30: Goodfellas mobsters fix games at Boston College

ESPN’s 30 for 30 franchise returns Tuesday night with a film you can’t resist.

Playing for the Mob is Goodfellas with the real Henry Hill and Ray Liotta, who serves as the narrator. The documentary, which airs Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN, tells the story of how Hill’s crew arranged to fix basketball games at Boston College during the late 70s.

Director Joe Lavine snagged an interview with Hill shortly before his death. That alone makes the film worth watching.
