I guess if they want to pretend that John Travolta can be a menacing mob boss, those same producers can pretend that Kim Kardashian is able to act at all. According the (surprisingly) usually correct TMZ, Kardashian is in talks to play a character that grew up Gotti. Kim Gotti, John Jr.’s wife, specifically.
As much as I hate the idea of Kim Kardashian being involved with anything ever, this choice seems to be somewhat appropriate. I have never seen, met, or even heard of Kim Gotti before this news, but I’m willing to bet she acts exactly like Kim Kardashian does in real life, thus precluding the need for Kim K. to act at all. Plus, the character’s name is Kim, so Kardashian won’t get confused when taking directions; she can just respond to her name in the dialogue, much like she does when she’s not acting. Perfect.
Since no other cast has been announced or rumored, I will curl up with the thought of Travolta’s John Sr. and Kardashian’s Kim in a tense scene.
John: Oh mah gahd, Kim! Sammy the Bull ratted me out!
Kim: (audible mouth breathing)
Kim: (looks up quickly, gently caresses left breast like she has been taught)
Director: That’s good, I guess. Cut.
