Chazz Palminteri cast in Barry Levinsonâ€™s â€śGottiâ€ť film
By Roger Friedman
HollywoodNews.com: Just announced: Chazz Paliminteri has been cast as monster Paul Castellano in Barry Levinsonâ€™s â€śGottiâ€ť film. Chazz joins John Travolta, Ben Foster, and who knows, maybe even Lindsay Lohan.
James Toback rewrote the script after Levinson took over this summer from Nick Cassavetes. Castellano, of course, was gunned down in front of Sparks Steak House in New York quite famously back on December 16, 1985. Since then, diners look both ways before exiting, and donâ€™t take home that many doggie bags. (It could be their last meal.) You could say Chazz has â€śsteakedâ€ť his claim on this movie. â€śGottiâ€ť is shaping up to be quite an event, and not for vegetarians.
