Paul Sorvino Furious With Weinstein Over Treatment Of Daughter Mira: ‘I Will Kill That Motherf***er’

The father of actress Mira Sorvino, Paul Sorvino (“Goodfellas”), wants to dish out his own brand of street justice on movie mogul Harvey Weinstein for the way he treated Sorvino’s daughter.

On top of accusing Harvey Weinstein of sexually harassing her in the late-90s as part of the #MeToo storm, evidence soon surfaced that the famed movie producer allegedly blacklisted the Academy Award-winning actress in retaliation for her refusing his advances.

The revelation came at the hands of “Lord of the Rings” director Peter Jackson, who said that during the early days of that film’s production, Weinstein persuaded him not to hire Sorvino or Ashley Judd.

“I recall Miramax telling us they were a nightmare to work with and we should avoid them at all costs,” said Jackson.

“At the time, we had no reason to question what these guys were telling us — but in hindsight, I realize that this was very likely the Miramax smear campaign in full swing,” added the director. “I now suspect we were fed false information about both of these talented women — and as a direct result their names were removed from our casting list.”

Sorvino responded to the devastating news on Twitter. “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.”

At the time, Sorvino had already won an Academy Award for her role in Woody Allen’s “Mighty Aphrodite.”

Now, Mira’s father wants revenge for the way Weinstein treated his daughter — the “Goodfellas” way.

“If I meet him on the street … he ought to hope he goes to jail,” Sorvino told TMZ Wednesday. “Because if we come across, I think he’ll be lying on the floor, somehow. Magically.”

“He’s gonna go to jail, that son of a b*tch,” the actor continued. “Good for him if he goes, ’cause if not he has to meet me. And I’ll kill the mother****er.”

Paul Sorvino admits to not knowing the extent of Weinstein’s alleged crimes.

“He would not be walking,” Sorvino said. “He’d be in a wheelchair.”
