John Travolta is becoming a part of the family!

To research his upcoming role as John Gotti in the new GOTTI biopic, Travolta took a trip to New York City Thursday to visit widow Victoria Gotti, and her son John “Junior” Gotti, among other key players.

The New York Post is reporting that Travolta brought a gift bag for Victoria Gotti, and was greeted with handshakes and hugs by ‘the family’.

The visit lasted a little more than two hours.

The movie, now titled GOTTI: IN THE SHADOW OF MY FATHER, is set to start shooting in January.
