American actor and businessman, Paul Sorvino has threatened to kill disgraced filmmaker, Harvey Weinstein after he allegedly blacklisted his daughter and Oscar-winning actress Mira Sorvino for turning down his sexual advances.
In a report published by Ronan Farrow at The New Yorker last October, Mira Sorvino accused Weinstien of sexual harassment in the 1990s.
The actress told Farrow that Weinstein started massaging her shoulders and tried to get physical with her at a hotel room in Toronto around the 1995 release of “Mighty Aphrodite.” Directors such as Peter Jackson and Terry Zwigoff later accused Weinstein of blacklisting Sorvino from auditioning for parts in “The Lord of the Rings” and “Bad Santa,” respectively.

TMZ caught up with Goodfellas star on Tuesday in Los Angeles, and asked for his reaction to reports that Weinstein blacklisted his Oscar-winning daughter after she refused his sexual advances.
He angrily said: “I will kill you motherfucker. “If I meet [Weinstein] on the street — he oughta hope that he goes to jail, because if we come across, I think he’ll be lying on the floor, somehow, magically,” Paul Sorvino said. “He’s going to go to jail. Oh yeah. That son of a bitch. Good for him if he goes, because if not, he has to meet me. And I will kill the motherfucker. Real simple.”
“If I had known it, he would not…be walking,” the actor added. “He’d be in a wheelchair…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. 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.”
