John Travolta as John Gotti?

TMZ is reporting this, I'm not sure if I can picture him as a gangster?

Re: John Travolta as John Gotti?

I realize this is a 2  yr old posting.....

 

The Gotti movie came out in 2018.  I watched it the other morning.  It's pretty good.  It's amazing what "movie makeup" can do.

I like John Travolta. I'm definitely not into Wiseguy movies. I haven't even seen The Godfather, if you can believe that. Tried to watch Goodfellas. Hated it and walked out. I heard John and Kelly interviewed about this movie. They worked with the Gotti family who picked John themselves.

In the history of ever, Rotten Tomatoes has only

given two or three “0% Ratings”...and Gotti was one of them.

It’s that bad.

Re: John Travolta as John Gotti?

I haven't seen it yet - don't know if I will. Kelly Preston plays Victoria Gotti, so that might make me more likely to see it. Although they do say many married couples have zero chemisty in movies! LOL! 

 

I've seen John in some crime or drama movies, like The General's Daughter and Carrie, and comedies like Look Who's Talking, Wild Hogs, and Hairspray,   but . . .

Re: John Travolta as John Gotti?

The movie seemed to me like a docudrama.  It was about Gotti, Sr & Jr.  Jr's story I did not know about except for what I saw & read in the news when he kept getting arrested.

You can watch it for me, as well.

Nope. Never seen it. No desire.
