Superstar John Travolta is making sure all of his bases are covered when he takes on the epic role of John Gotti in an upcoming biopic, even paying a visit to the late mobster’s wife, Victoria, to get her blessings for the film.

Travolta flew to Queens to kiss John Gotti’s famed gold ring as he prepares for his role as the notorious gangster.

The actor went to Victoria Gotti’s Howard Beach home, taking a gold gift bag with him, according to Gothamist.com.  He was “greeted with handshakes and hugs,” from John Junior Gotti and then had a two hour meeting with Victoria.

Travolta’s wife Kelly Preston is slated to play Victoria in Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the movie is slated to begin filming in January and actress Lindsay Lohan is close to signing the deal to appear in the film.
