Paul Sorvino on Tuesday was asked what his response was to reports that Harvey Weinstein trashed his Oscar-winning daughter Mira to directors, including Peter Jackson, after she refused his sexual advances.
‘He better hope that he goes to jail. Because if we come across [each other] I think he will be lying on the floor‘, said Sorvino.
‘He’s gonna go to jail that son of a b****. And good for him if he goes, because if he not, he has to meet me.’
He then added: ‘And I will kill that motherf*****.‘
Of course, Paul Sorvino was reacting to the news from last month that Harvey and Bob Weinstein discouraged director Terry Zwigoff from casting actress Mira Sorvino in his movie.
The “Goodfellas” actor told the gossip site he “did not know the extent” of Weinstein’s alleged behavior.
“If I had known it, he would not…be walking. He’d be in a wheelchair,” he said adding his was “absolutely furious” when he heard the news about Weinstein.
“My daughter is a wonderful person… and she doesn’t deserve to have been treated that way by this pig. So this pig will get his comeuppance,” the 78-year-old Sorvino declared.
“He’s going to go to jail and die in jail, but if he doesn’t, Harvey, come here, I have some news for you.
The director of “Bad Santa”, Zwigoff revealed in December he was strongly advised not to cast Mira Sorvino in his movie, allegedly because she rejected Weinstein’s advances.
“I was interested in casting Mira Sorvino in BAD SANTA, but every time I mentioned her over the phone to the Weinsteins, I’d hear a CLICK,” Zwigoff tweeted Dec. 15.
I was interested in casting Mira Sorvino in BAD SANTA, but every time I mentioned her over the phone to the Weinsteins, I’d hear a CLICK. What type of person just hangs up on you like that?! I guess we all know what type of person now. I’m really sorry Mira. https://twitter.com/MiraSorvino/status/941689525960556544 …
Just seeing this after I awoke, I burst out crying. There it is, confirmation that Harvey Weinstein derailed my career, something I suspected but was unsure. Thank you Peter Jackson for being honest. I’m just heartsick https://twitter.com/rt_falconer/status/941434147158896640 …
Mira Sorvino believes all the built-up rejection of Weinstein ultimately cost her, her career.
As Mira said, “I definitely felt iced out and that my rejection of Harvey had something to do with it.’
Weinstein is a schmuck and deserves to be punished for his disgusting and piglike behavior over the years.
For a ‘Goodfella’ like Paul Sorvino to come out and speak his mind about Weinstein seems to me like a Hollywood poetic justice doesn’t it?
