John Travolta has been nabbed to play ‘Teflon Don’ John Gotti, the former head of the Gambino crime family, in the upcoming film “Gotti: Three Generations.” (The nickname came from the fact that the feds had a hard time making any charges stick.) Now, yet another member of the notorious crime family may be cast – and you won’t believe how ALIKE they look!
Now we’re getting word that Lindsay Lohan is up for the role of Victoria Gotti, John’s daughter. Producer Marc Fiore actually confirmed that he is “in talks” with her. Even the real Victoria seems to like Lindsay for the role, as she is rumored to have hand-picked her.
Per E! Online:
“I think she’d be great and I think she’s got what it takes…I think Lindsay can play anyone, but I’ve always thought that…before we even met,” Victoria told E!. “I’d be content if she was chosen. Absolutely.”
“I’ve always thought she was gorgeous and talented and filled with a lot of depth. So I think that whatever she would like to do would be great with me.”
So as long as Lindsay can stay out of jail, it seems like she has this one in the bag. Joe Pesci will play Angelo Ruggiero, Gott’s right-hand man (good thing Joe hasn’t been type-cast, right?), and Travolta’s real-life daughter Ella Bleu has an unspecified role in the film as well. On Tuesday, there was a press conference for the movie, where Lindsay and the real Victoria met up. Don’t they look alike?
Do you think Lindsay would be able to get herself together enough to actually finish the filming? Her last movie attempts ended in failure because of her legal and personal issues. Currently, she is awaiting a trial over the theft of a $2,500 necklace. The charges are felony theft, which could carry rather serious consequences if she is convicted. Despite that, Lindsay declined to take a plea deal in the case. She was recently fired from ‘Inferno,’ the Linda Lovelace biopic, and there’s no way her ongoing legal problems and train wreck status weren’t to blame. Perhaps the Gotti shot-callers are waiting to see how her real life grueling legal saga plays out in court before officially inking her to a deal. Smart move.
