Chazz Palminteri cast in Barry Levinson’s “Gotti” film
HollywoodNews.com: Just announced: Chazz Paliminteri has been cast as monster Paul Castellano in Barry Levinson’s “Gotti” 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 don’t take home that many doggie bags. (It could be their last meal.) You could say Chazz has “steaked” his claim on this movie. “Gotti” is shaping up to be quite an event, and not for vegetarians.
