John Travolta has been cast is a pretty big role.  he has been chosen to play legendary mobster John Gotti in an upcoming bio pic.

Looks like John Travolta has his next big movie role set.  He has been cast to play the one and only Dapper Don, John Gotti in the upcoming film Gotti: Three Generations. The film will mainly focus on the relationship between John Gotti Sr and John Gotti Jr.

Gotti Sr, the head of the Gambino crime family, died in prision back in 2002.  Gotti Jr will be heavily involved in the project, most likely to preserve the authenticity of the film and give Travolta tips on how to play his father.

Travolta and the films director, Nick Cassavetes, will be doing an official press conference on the film on April 12 and John Gotti Jr will be in attendance as well.
