I don’t know if John Travolta and John Gotti Jr. are hugging, trying to steal each other’s wallets or awkwardly wrestling for the bottom position. Whatever the case may be, this picture of John and Junior was taken outside of a restaurant in Brentwood last night. No, John didn’t meet with Junior to put a hit out on Ricky Gervais. John is thinking about playing John Gotti Sr. in a biopic on the Gotti family and he talked with Junior and director Nick Cassavetes about the project over dinner.
John and the mafia sort of have a lot in common, so this does make sense. Both know their way around a back room. Both are experts at rubbing a dude out. Both flip out over shiny suits. Both use a front to hide the activities they don’t want anyone knowing about. So this is perfect casting! But John is probably only doing it, because he’s always wanted a wig of sparkly platinum polyester follicles on his head. Although, with a silver wig on his head, John might look more like Leona Helmsley than John Gotti.
