Trivia (3)

Second-in-command to New York Mafia boss John Gotti. When Gravano was arrested on a variety of federal charges along with Gotti, he decided to turn states' evidence and cooperate with the government in exchange for placement in the Witness Protection Program--mainly because he feared Gotti was going to have him killed because he knew too much about Gotti's criminal activities--thus becoming the highest-ranking Mafia boss ever to become a cooperating witness. He testified in court against Gotti and confessed to having committed 19 murders on Gotti's orders (although authorities suspected him of committing quite a bit more than 19).
Father of Karen Gravano.
Counts The Godfather (1972) and The Godfather: Part II (1974) among his favorite films. Ironically, he killed Paul Castellano, uncle of cast member Richard Castellano.
