Actor Paul Sorvino, known for his movie mobster roles, threatened Tuesday to kill Harvey Weinstein for blacklisting his daughter when she refused his sexual advances in the 1990s.

Sorvino, 78, perhaps most recognized for his role in “Goodfellas,” threatened to kill Weinstein for allegedly making sexual advances and then blacklisting his daughter, Mira Sorvino, in a video captured by TMZ.

“He’s going to go to jail, if not he will meet me and I will kill that motherfucker,” Sorvino said as he was getting into his car. The actor said he was furious when he found out about the allegations, praising his daughter as courageous for coming forward.

“I’ll just slap him around, I won’t do anything terrible,” Sorvino clarified.

Mira Sorvino told The Hollywood Reporter in December that Weinstein tried to massage her, but she escaped without being raped in the 1990s. Due to the weight, Weinstein had in the entertainment industry, she was not offered another role after 1996 and was blacklisted through a “smear campaign,” reported Fox News.

Mira said that she “burst out crying” upon learning that Weinstein ended her career.
