The downstairs second kitchen is more robustly equipped for cooking than the upstairs kitchen. This one is outfitted with large stainless steel appliances and a huge sink. It might be the place where Pesci once gained 30 pounds for a role in as mafioso Angelo Ruggiero in an upcoming film titled “Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father.”
That role never happened. Pesci sued Fiore Films in 2011, claiming that the production company intentionally cut his role and gave him a smaller role, and thus a smaller paycheck, just so the company could say they had Pesci on board.
It’s a good thing he never made that movie. The film that finally got made was “Gotti,” starring John Travolta. It has a zero percent critical score on Rotten Tomatoes.
