What Harvey Weinstein did to Mira Sorvino is despicable.
As for the blacklisting, however, we now have the testimony of multiple directors, including Peter Jackson who was making Lord Of The Rings at the time, who have confirmed Weinstein kept them from hiring the Mighty Aphrodite star.
When TMZ caught up with Mira’s father, Paul Sorvino — whom you might know from Goodfellas, Law & Order, and numerous other tough guy roles — they asked what he thought of those accusations.
Clearly Paul learned a thing or two from decades of playing cops and crooks, as he gave a very clear but legally unactionable answer:
“If I meet him on the street… he better hope that he goes to jail. Because if we come across, I think he’ll be lying on the floor. Somehow. Magically.”
Ha! Spoken like a real movie mobster!
But such was Paul’s anger that it did not take long for the veneer to drop. He then added:
“He’s gonna go to jail. That son of a bitch. And good for him if he goes, because if he not, he has to meet me. And I will kill the motherfucker. Real simple.”
Hey, don’t look at us. We didn’t hear nothin’.
