Dominic Cooper - Dominic Cooper Lined Up For Gotti Role

Rising star Dominic Cooper has reportedly seen off Johnny Depp, Jeremy Renner and James Franco to play John Gotti Jr. in the mobster biopic.
Gotti: Three Generations focuses on the story of notorious gangster John Gotti and his relationship with his son. John Travolta will play the senior mobster, with Al Pacino also starring in the movie.
New York Post gossip column Page Six reports director Barry Levinson wants Mamma Mia! star Cooper to take the coveted role of Gotti Jr. after being "blown away" by his screen test. The film's bosses are believed to have previously considered a host of big star names for the part, including Depp.
An insider tells the publication, "He's read the Gotti script and already has great suggestions for the role."
Levinson was also recently spotted at the New York premiere of Cooper's forthcoming thriller The Devil's Double, fuelling the speculation.
