CAN JOHN TRAVOLTA FILL JOHN GOTTI SR’S ITALIAN SHOES?

We were floored to hear that John Travolta is first choice to play the “Dapper Don,” John Gotti Sr, in the story of his life. The film’s executive producer Marc Fiore and John Gotti Jr, along with director Nick Cassavetes, met with Travolta at an Italian restaurant in LA to discuss the deal. Junior Gotti wants John to play his father and he’d like James Franco to play himself! (Imagine THAT ego!) We had no idea that Junior Gotti was so open minded – he has no objection to casting a Scientologist of questionable sexual preference to play his legendary mobster father! And WHO will play Victoria Gotti Charlize Theron?

    John Gotti jr. wants Him? Hmmm. Why? Reminds me somehow of the Soprano’s bit. Who cares about John Gotti. It aint gonna be Bugsy.
    Janet I really am interested in the new Lady GaGa perfume. Sounds fabulous.
    Heard of it Reta? Apparently it has the scent of freshly battered babies.

    He can fill Gotti’s hair. That must have been the deal maker. Apparently, the rest aren’t deal breakers.

    PS: But, if it’s a bad performance, it will be a leg breaker.

    Interesting, and I think good choices actually, Travolta and Franco both. Between Gotti’s roots as a native NY’er and his own family’s dubious history, I don’t understand why his lack of bias and prejudice comes as a surprise though. Being originally from there myself, I’d describe it as normal clear minded thinking rather than open minded.

    Oh and I almost forgot.. Travolta shares Gotti’s roots too. Travolta was born and raised in Englewood, New Jersey, an inner-ring suburb of New York City.

    What does him being a religious cocksucker have to do with anything? I can see John being a ruthless mob boss.

    Watching J. Revolting play Gotti would be a scream and so laughable. Who could possibly take it serious. Anyone who has not been living in a cave has read he is a flaming qu**r. Per Star, Globe, Enquirer, many more mags, sworn statements, pictures, he is a homosexual, all of GollyWeird knows it. Kelly Preston knows it and Scientologists have taped her mouth shut about it. So to see him playing a mafia mobster, oh yeah…..rotflmao.

    Travolta has already played mobster type characters in two very successful and critically acclaimed movies – Pulp Fiction and Get Shorty.

    Who’s laughing now..

    No matter what else you can say about Gotti, Sr., he would never be caught dead in that cheap, tacky wig Travolta wears.

    ^^^^Those 2 roles in PF and GS came out well before the world now knows that he is gay. If anyone would like to see a gay play a tough mafia goon, so be it. I would just be picturing him in a gay spa having a gay old time and lmao.(:

    And it would appear that Kelly is smart to keep her mouth shut about the fact that she knows she is married to a homosexual. John and the uber-powerful Scientologists could easily make life very tough on her if she gave a statement to the press as to why she is risking AIDS to stay with this SCI robot. Look what happened to Nicole Kidman. The tiny great one showed her the door after she finally denounced Scientology and went back to her Catholic roots, and she more or less lost her two adopted kids with him. Very very few know how powerful Scientology really is; they stop at nothing to protect their big money givers.

    Janet, I have been your fan since the days of “Gossip Gossip Gossip”, and I want to tell you that sometimes you are such a superficial, catty, petty hateful bitch you make me ashamed.

  16. By Lisa
    On January 29, 2011 at

    On that note, I could give a rat’s ass about his sexuality. I’m absolutely looking forward to this movie, and I think JT is gonna smash it! I can EASILY see him as the dapper don!

  17. By Muffin Top!!
    On January 29, 2011 at

    I kind of agree with Lisa. How can you write such nonsense unless you were a fly on the wall, somewhere, sometime. Who gives a shit about who he prefers in the bedroom as long as he isn’t married to you. Just the fact that you keep bringing this issue up shows that you have a problem with his sexuality. Enough already, please.

    By the way I don’t believe the rumors. I think some Religious groups/ people are trying to make JT & TC look bad.

    PS I have been a fan of Janet since the Geraldo Rivera show.

    Nice to FINALLY see some people here who don’t give a shit about anybodies sexual preferences. The man is an ACTOR. He would be hired to play a known character and apparently the powers that be think he comes closest to the fit they need/want. Time will tell. I know JT WAS great in Pulp Fiction (I think his best role ever) and I also loved him in Michael where he played an unusual angel.
    Why any of us have any interest in his sexuality or religion confounds the hell out of me. Imagine if it were YOU and people were battling YOU about who you love or screw and how you worship or what? There are far too many differences in people all around the world and people in general need to come to terms with the idea and accept that. It’s not going away so settle down.

    Indy: you seem to be stridently anti-gay. Okay, we get it. You’re heavily religious which in my opinion is the base cause of your homophobia. But, I am challenging you to dig deeper in your famous book. Did “He” not create “man” in His image? Does He not love “all” of us? How about my favorite life lesson “Do unto others…” Sound familiar? Why don’t you give it a try for maybe a week or so and see if you don’t feel better, less hostile?

  21. By Reta

    Patrick: No, can’t say as I have. Not too tuned into the Gagme phenomenon. I find her a bit too much in her trying to desperately to constantly be seen in public as a freak. I crave the Janis Joplin kind of woman singer who blasts it out and just KILLS on talent, not gimmicks. Hell, she didn’t even wear makeup most of the time.
    Then there’s Annie Lennox; k.d.lang to name a couple. k.d. is fabulous in concert by the way.

    I don’t know if he can fill Mr Gotti’s shoes but he might like to wear Mrs Gotti’s shoes.

  23. By Reta
    On January 29, 2011 at

    Zippy: You DO realize JT is an ACTOR, don’t you? It would be a ROLE and he would be supplied wardrobe and wig as per the character.

    The homophobia on this sight is like a pile of rabid panting dogs in sync chasing a baby rabbit down a dead-end alley. But I guess you guys are pretty proud of your hatred, huh?

  24. By Bettye Bluejay

    No, Charlize already played that character in Monster.

    Travolta was great in “Get Shorty” — and he also did a wonderful job as a Bill Clinton type presidential candidate in “Primary Colors.” I was pretty amazed at how great he was in both roles… :)

  26. By right

    If Travoltas is in the movie, it will flop. Travolta hasn’t made a decent movie in 15 years. His participation in the movie guarantees it will suck, just like he does.

    relentless gay bashers are self loathing closet cases living in denial, hating in others what they hate about themselves

    Sounds about right shrink. They sure obsess over them enough for people who are supposedly nothing like them.

  29. By Indy
    On January 30, 2011 at

    I am not a homo-phobe. Au contraire, I feel sorry for those in the gay lifestyle. I feel even sorrier for those in the mind-bending, brain-washing cult of Scientology. Also, I never said I hated them or that Jesus hated them. Does no one feel sadness that Kelly cannot or won’t leave her gay hubby and Scientology and have a chance to be saved? Read Romans Chapter 1, last 15 verses; I did not write this.

    zippy and right: Your assessments are correct.

  30. By Muffin Top!!
    On January 30, 2011 at

    Indy I hate to repeat myself but, do you have some inside information about what goes on in JT & KP bedroom?

    You feel sorry for homosexuals? Puleez, don’t feel sorry for them. I think they are fine with who they are!! It is only people such as yourself, who have an issue with something, that in my opinion, is none of your business!!

  31. By TJF
    On January 30, 2011 at

    John would be good in this…He was EXTREMELY menacing, smooth, handsome, yet darkly dangerous as the loanshark in Get Shorty, remember? Bring it, John!

    I too think he would be great in this role, and I couldn’t care less about his sexuality.

    Oh, and Rick, I thought Lady Gaga’s perfume was supposed to smell like semen and blood? (not kidding, I read it elsewhere) If so, yet another reason to run from the “spritzer girls”.

  35. By Hello

    He was a bad ass in, Paris, something playIng a secret spy/cleaner.

    For all those homo comments, Jt, is Teflon, he keeps going roles and he’s still a+.

  37. By Rick
    On January 30, 2011 at

    Hey Denise, I wasn’t the one who made that comment, but I think I can clear the confusion up. One of semen’s slang names is ‘baby batter’. Yeah, I know.. the first time I heard it, I thought who the heck thought that up too, lol

  38. By Rick
    On January 30, 2011 at

    Indy, all I can say is !! WOW !! too. You didn’t use the word hate in your various comments, but in all seriousness, if you had just come right out and said you hate them, it would have been a lot kinder than what you did say. Food for thought, but don’t strain your brain, because at this point I’m not expecting much.

  39. By Denise
    On January 30, 2011 at

    Rick, all I can say, is gross. That’s a term I have never heard before. And I hope I never hear it again.

  40. By Rick
    On January 30, 2011 at

    I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to gross you out. I couldn’t think of a delicate way of explaining it.

  41. By Indy
    On January 30, 2011 at

    Crushed, just crushed, but not down.

    I’m assuming no one owns a Bible, or even knows that the book of Romans is in the Bible. **Or** no one wants to investigate this matter.

    PS: If anyone is hated, it apparently is Yours Truly. And that is just fine and dandy.

    I dont think people care so much that Travolta is gay, they care that he’s living a lie with the help of Scientology. Its well known all over Hollywood that he’s gay….its the hypocrasy that people dont like.
    I think Travolta would be great in this role….he played a mobster in Pulp Fiction and was fantastic in that movie. One of the best movies ever.

    I wish the part would go with an unknown would be so much better and to have john travolta play the part is wrong in my book

    Some movie stars are so tight cast that they can’t really make the role to them and I THINK THERE IS SOMETHING LACKING AND THERE NEEDS TO BE SOME ONE WHO IS BREAKING INTO MOVIE BUSINESS A FRESH FACE AND SOME ONE NEW? Any one with an amazing body and handsome face will do?

    I think a star that is not know and some one who is hungry and wants the part it will work but I think this show needs to take another direction?

    On September 11, 2011 at

    Good luck with finding the right guy but I really don’t think a movie star should play this part…I feel if you let a movie star take this part the movie is going to Bomb on so many levels.

    On September 11, 2011 at

    I Think some one younger needs to play the part and they need to have passion and…Soul and it should not be a movie star playing this part and it should be some one who is the same height and weight as the man who lived that life?
