Think you're a tough guy, Matt?


Matt Dillon is joining the mob. For film anyway. Variety says the former 80’s icon will produce and star in a film about New York rogue, Eddie Money. He is developing the script with screenwriter Mike Jones. It’s based, in part, on Maloney’s autobiography "Tough Guy: The True Story of ‘Crazy’ Eddie Maloney." Maloney was a flinty career criminal who survived multiple assassination attempts. Orphaned as a child, he did stretches in prison for jewelry heists and specialized in kidnapping mob bosses before becoming an informant for the FBI and a witness at the trial of John Gotti.
