Gotti film just scored a huge star

As if it weren’t cool enough that Lindsay Lohan was going to get to be in a film with John Travolta, the movie biography of John Gotti has just cast an even bigger star: Al Pacino.  Pacino is slated to take on the role of Neil Dellacroce, a colleague of Gotti’s who had many ties to the Gambino crime family.

Although this means that Pacino is not in one of the lead roles, Dellacroce is still an important figure in Gotti’s life, so hopefully this means mare than a little screen time for Pacino.  He has tended toward overacting in recent projects, but he’s still one of the finest actors out there for my money, and I’d pay to see any movie he’s in, even if it does have Lindsay Lohan in it.
