Ben Foster to Play John Gotti Jr. in Biopic
By Brian Marder

One of the biggest pieces to the mystifying puzzle that is Gotti: Three Generations is finally in place: Ben Foster will play John Gotti Jr. in the upcoming biopic.

The Mechanic (et al.) star joins John Travolta -- as Gotti Sr. -- Al Pacino, and Kelly Preston in the Barry Levinson-directed drama about the titular mob boss, from the viewpoint of John Jr.

Levinson had some nice things to say about his newest cast member, whose film career received a jumpstart (in 1999's Liberty Heights) thanks to the director: "[Ben] is one of the few young actors who can literary transform himself from role to role, from light comedy to a deadly gunslinger in 3:10 to Yuma. I think he can bring something very memorable to the role of Gotti Jr."

And Foster volleyed the compliments right back: "Barry Levinson was the first director who took a chance on me, and I have a career because of him. This is a film about family, fathers and sons. I am deeply honored for the opportunity to work with Barry and the amazing cast he is assembling to help bring the story of the Gotti family to the screen."

The film, which hasn't even begun shooting, has been in the headlines frequently, thanks to the highly publicized comings and goings of Lindsay Lohan, Joe Pesci and director Nick Cassavetes.
