Travolta Relishes Role as Mob Boss
John Travolta says his upcoming performance as an infamous New York mafia boss will offer audiences a movie they can’t refuse.
The star is set to play late Gambino crime family boss John Gotti in director Nick Cassavetes’film, “Gotti: Three Generations.”
“This is probably the most interesting, untold story in this country,” Travolta said at a press conference for the film.
During his long and bloody career as the head of one of New York’s largest mafia families, Gotti was known as the “Dapper Don” and also the “Teflon Don” for his longtime ability to beat federal prosecutors in court.
