So it’s looking like John Travolta is going to play John Gotti in an upcoming feature film based on his life. I don’t really care that Travolta is a closeted homosexual, but I doubt a hyper conservative Italian mob boss would want a dude who meets guys for sex in bath houses to play him. But the Gotti family seems to have co-signed Mr. Travolta. How progressive of them. According to The Daily Mail:
- It takes a very strong individual to sit down with one of the world’s most notorious crime families.
But if it could result in playing one of the biggest roles of his career, you can hardly blame John Travolta for jumping at the chance to hang out with the mob.
The actor was snapped having a meal with John Angelo Gotti, himself a former mobster, but also the son of one of New York’s most feared – and sometimes revered – crime boss, the late John Gotti.
Travolta met with Junior Gotti – as he is known – hoping to seek his approval to play the King of New York in an upcoming biopic.
And thankfully for the star, there were no horses heads in his bed the following morning as he was given the family’s utmost blessing.
Below from left to right is John Angelo Gotti (John Gotti’s son), John Travolta, and director Nick Cassavete.
