James Gandolfini Goes From Mob Boss to NYC Mayor for Pelham Remake

Everybody's favorite TV mob boss appears to have turned over a new leaf. James Gandolfini has been cast to play the NYC mayor in director Tony Scott's remake of the 1974 thriller The Taking of Pelham One, Two, Three. He joins Denzel Washington and John Travolta. Variety has more:

Gandolfini will plays a pol under incredible pressure to end a crisis when a packed subway car is ransomed by a criminal (Travolta) and his gang.

So, from the Bada-Bing strip club to city hall, I'd say Gandolfini's doing pretty well for himself, wouldn't you? I look forward to seeing how Scott plans to update this movie, though I have a long time to wait: Pelham most likely won't be released until Fall 2009.

I had so hoped the casting of Travolta was a bad rumor, he can't do bad guys, and he butchered his role in Hairspray. And the fake hair, the excess weight and the crazy cult? Seriously! As much as I admire Denzel, I won't be watching this one.

I love love love James Gandolfini and I can't wait to see him with Denzel but John Revolta? He's a bad actor with spray on hair and prays to Xenu!

VERY excited about Gandolfini and Washington. However, not so much with Travolta. He always goes over the top when he plays bad guys.
