John Travolta Is Fascinated by Robert Shapiro's Ego

John Travolta wears a bow-tie with his suit while appearing on Good Morning America on Tuesday morning (February 2) in New York City.

The 61-year-old actor appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert the night before to promote his new series American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson.

John was recently asked by Parade to say what fascinates him about his character Robert Shapiro.

“I think his ego. I think I’ve been around enough of his type of man in the legal world and in the show business world—producers and studio heads. But there was enough of the kind of person I understood, where I felt like I could get an angle on it that would work,” he said.

    John Travolta’s portrayal of Robert Shapiro is oddly over dramatic, however, very interesting. After watching the first part I wanted to see if Robert Shapiro actually spoke as intentionally or in as melodramically, as Travolta did, so I watched a video of him. In my opinion, Shapiro was not nearly as dramatic or intentional as Travolta portrayed him, but I think Travolta’s choice to make Shapiro a more intense character was a good one because I think it would have otherwise been boring.

    His over acting was a bit much. It was super dramatic even his mannerisms were strange. Anyway I will watch it just so I can laugh at Travolta
