Cannes Film Fest 2018: Travolta (Promoting Gotti) and Rapper 50 Cent

John Travolta and rapper 50 Cent joining forces?

Yes: Travolta moved around during 50 Cent’s hit song “Just A Lil Bit” at a party celebrating his being the first honoree of Variety Cinema Icon Award.

The New York rapper, who has been shot several times, used to be a drug-dealing gangster. Travolta is in Cannes to promote his latest movie, Gotti, in which he plays the titular character and real-life head of the Mafioso Gambino family.

John Gotti, known as “The Dapper Don”, presided over a drug-trafficking empire in New York in the 1980s; some claim he inspired the character of Joey Zasa in Coppola’s third and final chapter of The Godfather, in 1990.

Travolta was joined by ‘Junior’ Gotti, John’s so and alleged heir to his crime empire through the 1990s. Junior spent almost six and a half years in prison on charges of bribery, extortion, gambling and fraud.

Travolta became close to the family during the film’s production. Travolta’s real wife Kelly Preston plays Gotti’s wife Victoria, who invited the couple into the home she shared with her late husband.
