Travolta was captured on camera while strolling the streets of Brooklyn with his mob henchmen for the upcoming film, The Life & Death of John Gotti.

The scenes were shot on Tuesday and the Pulp Fiction actor donned greyed locks, a red turtleneck and brown blazer with a pinky ring, the attire of the notorious mob boss.

Fans from the Brooklyn neighborhoods where they filmed on Tuesday came out to take photos of the star playing the man also known as "The Dapper Don." 

The film, which is being directed by Entourage star Kevin Connolly and also stars Travolta’s real-life wife Kelly Preston, follows Gotti’s life as he rose to power in the 1970s.
