John Travolta, who once played a hit man in Pulp Fiction, is set to portray former New York crime boss John Gotti in Gotti: Three Generations. “This is probably the most interesting untold story in this country, and what a character to approach and understand,” said Travolta, who admitted at a news conference that he was a fan of the reality series Growing Up Gotti.
Goodfellas star Joe Pesci has signed on as Gotti’s friend Angelo Ruggiero, and Lindsay Lohan is rumored to star as Gotti’s daughter, Victoria Gotti (Lohan attended the conference). Nicknamed the “Teflon Don,” the 61-year-old died of cancer in jail in 2002. An actor to play John Gotti Jr. has yet to be named. Filmmaker Nick Cassavetes (Alpha Dog, The Notebook) will direct the feature.

Lindsay Lohan told Judge Keith Schwartz today that she agreed to delay her case when prosecutors will present their evidence.
March 25 has been selected for Lohan to make a plea. Reportedly Lohan rejected a plea agreement and her attorney says that Lindsay is innocent of the alleged jewelry theft where this latest sound and fury originates.
In 2007 Lohan was arrested twice (and later charged with) [for] drunken driving and drug possession. Within the past year Lohan has seen the inside of jail twice and ordered into rehab twice.
The jewelry store caper occurred in January while Lohan was still on probation.
“I hope I didn’t embarrass you Lindsay and your family,” David Letterman said on his show after offering an explanation and a unapologetic apology to all the big and little Lindsays. “I have no one to blame but myself.”
All comes from a top ten show segment where Letterman joked that Lindsay had just stolen a Grammy, in reference to her recent arrest for suspicion of felony theft.
Letterman says he got a call next day saying that Lohan found the joke hilarious and wanted to be on his show. Letterman then got his PR to send a release of the appearance to just everyone, everywhere.
Not long afterward, Letterman‘s assistants had to tell their boss that Lohan knew nothing of the joke, the call and didn’t want be on his show (via satellite because of her parole and bail).
If one had only read the monologue speech it would not seem insincere, but 40 years of Letterman perfecting his brand of deadpan, cynical, irreverent, self-deprecating humor made it clear that he was most angry at the joker who made a fool of the jokester.
