John Travolta is celebrating the release of his new film “Debbie” in a big way.
On Friday, the actor appeared on “Good Morning America”, where he was a member of Miami born singer and rapper Pitbull for a performance at the GMA Central Park concert stage.
“Oh my god, [positive energy] is so infectious,” the famous movie star said the singer on the morning show. “It is incredible. I mean, he just injects life and spirit in everyone.”
Travolta joins Pitbull on the stage together with ” GMA ” hosts Robin Roberts and Michael Strahan.
The Grammy-winner, who has helped in composing the score for the Travolta’s gangster bio-pic, and thanked the actor for him along at the podium and said that he was “honored” to have worked with him. While Pitbull on stage, Travolta danced together with GMA host Robin Roberts in the wings.
The 64-year-old actor, long-awaited project “Debbie” finally opened in theaters on Friday. In the mob-flick, Travolta stars as the notorious New York gangster John Gotti and his real-life wife, Kelly Preston, the star as Gotti’s wife Victoria.
Although the film was the long-awaited, after a ten-year-long production, early reviews are not in favor of the Kevin Connelly-directed film. The Hollywood Reporter called the picture “an entirely hagiographic — one might even say pro-mob — biopic.” While the New York Times simply stated that it was “a mess.”
The biopic, which is slated premiere at 503 theaters, also had a dismal zero percent score on Rotten tomatoes, based on six reviews from the Cannes Film Festival, Variety reported, adding that the biopic might get pummeled in the box office.
