AceShowbiz - Police detective-turned-private eye Bo Dietl will play a real-life mobster in Martin Scorsese's upcoming movie "The Irishman".
"I grew up with all the mob guys," Deitl, who ran for the office of New York City mayor in 2017, tells Page Six. "I knew John Gotti, I knew Fat Tony (Anthony Salerno), so it wasn't hard for me to play a mob guy, because I knew them all, but I went in a different direction in life."
The trailer for Scorsese's latest Mafia movie debuted on Wednesday (July 31) and stunned fans with technology that allowed the director to make De Niro look decades younger. The film will open the New York Film Festival in September.
