John Travolta -- Junior Gotti Rats on Daddy

1/28/2011 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

John Travolta got the scoop on John Gotti during his Monday night powwow with the mafia boss' son -- we're told the conversation covered everything from Gotti's favorite food to his giant diamond watch.

According to inside sources, the dinner was very informal ... and rather than talking contracts for the upcoming biopic, Travolta prodded Junior for the nitty-gritty on Gotti's life.

We're told Junior Gotti talked about his dad's favorite things to order at restaurants -- the Italian classics, obviously -- but the most interesting talking point was his dad's diamond watch ... which the mob boss would wear so it would stick out prominently from his sleeve ... for all to see.

As we first reported, the sit-down at Amici restaurant in L.A. was a summit meeting to convince Travolta to play Gotti in the new movie -- the film's director Nick Cassavetes and producer Marc Fiore were also there.

Who cares. The best of Gotti has already been done by the history channel and the FBI Files. Who needs to spend 12 bucks for a washdown movie.

The meeting actually took place in a bath house so Travolta could get right down to business after his mafia friends left the premises.

NOW THAT'S GONNA BE AN AWESOME MOVIE!!!!!!!!!! BESIDES BEING AN A PLUS ACTOR, HE CAN DO SO MANY DIFFERENT VOICES. SO THE NEW YORK ACCENT WILL BE A PIECE OF CAKE FOR HIM. BUT THE REAL QUESTION IS WHO WILL THEY GET TO PLAY HIS WIFE??? P.S. TO ALL YOU HATERS LEAVING YOUR SNIDE COMMENTS, GET OVER IT! HE WORKED HIS AZZ OFF ALL HIS LIFE FOR WHAT HE HAS, SO HE DOESN'T OWE YOU PEOPLE ANYTHING, ALL HE'S GUILTY OF IS HARD WORK AND BEING A GREAT FATHER/HUSBAND. SO SHUT THE HEZZ UP ALREADY.

All you ppl hatin on travolta are dumb and know nothing about the movie biz.. You make a movie to "sell," and with travolta as Gotti the movie will sell. Name me another actor with a bigger fan base than john travolta who would be able to play the part........ Exactly you can't. So sit back, relax, and watch one of the greatest mobb stories of all time flourish through the box offices.
