Ben Foster To Play The Prodigal Son In ‘Gotti’

Well, I’ll be damned. They weren’t able to find a way to shoehorn a Travolta into the role of John Gotti Jr., so they had to go out and get an actor to play him. And that actor is Mr. Ben Foster, who got his film debut in Liberty Heights courtesy of Gotti director Barry Levinson. Since then, Foster has appeared in 3:10 to Yuma, X-Men: The Last Stand, Alpha Dog, and The Mechanic. His casting is the latest in a seemingly endless stream of casting stories about Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father.

Foster doesn’t look the type out of the gate, but give him Gotti’s black hair and a quick spray tan, and they might be on to something here. Junior Gotti took over for his father following the Senior Gotti’s passing in 2002.

Interestingly enough, it’s Gotti Jr. that sold the rights to his family’s story to Fiore, a smaller, production company that he felt would create a less sensational film than a bigger studio. I don’t know if you can consider anything with Al Pacino and John Travolta “less sensational” than anything, but we’ll find out whenever this thing finally gets made.
