John Travolta got an offer he couldn't refuse - the role of the late Dapper Don. John Gotti.
Thinking this could be the big role to net him an Oscar, the actor met with Gotti's son, "Junior" Gotti, to discuss the part and agreed to add it to a resume that includes roles as Vinny Barbarino, Tony Manero and Chili Palmer.
Gotti, who famously claimed to have left the mob life, has been working on a screenplay about his father for more than a year and appears close to bringing it to the screen. Sources close to him had previously speculated that Sylvester Stallone might get the part, but it appears that possibility has been rubbed out.
