John Travolta was spotted in Bath Beach on the set of “The Life and Death of John Gotti” dressed as the infamous mob boss on Feb. 21. The actor, also of “Saturday Night Fever” fame, plays the notorious gangster in the film set to released in 2017.

Travolta strutted along 17th Avenue sporting a brown suit, burgundy turtleneck, and slicked-back silver locks in his portrayal of the infamous mafioso — nicknamed the “Teflon Don” because of his acquittal in three criminal cases, though he eventually died in prison on a life sentence for racketeering.

The film tracks Gotti’s rise to mobster fame in the 1980s and his relationship with his son “Junior.” The younger ex-mobster even stopped by the set to pose for selfies with cast, crew, and fans who flocked to the movie set.

Travolta stars alongside real-life wife Kelly Preston, who is playing Gotti’s spouse Victoria.
