Joe Pesci Suing Gotti Producers

Pesci Gangsta

Joe Pesci is so not happy with the producers of Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father, he's suing them for $3 million plus punitive damages.

According to Pesci, he made a locked deal with them to play the role of Angelo Ruggiero which required him to end his healthy diet and gain 30 pounds for a pay of $3 million.

After he made the physical changes, he claims the producers reneged on the deal, offering him a lesser role instead with a smaller check of $1 million.

Pesci is just not having it. He wanted to play John Travolta's friend!

That was his role! His, we say! HIS!
