Behold John Travolta’s Deranged Stalker Style in Fred Durst’s ‘Moose’
Today is a day of looks. In addition to some wild set photos of Damian Lewis as Rob Ford (or is it Fat Bastard from Austin Powers?) in an upcoming biopic about the disgraced former Toronto mayor, another particularly spectacular set photo is making the rounds: One featuring John Travolta, who is definitely making some strong aesthetic choices as a deranged celebrity stalker in Fred Durst’s (yes, that Fred Durst) new movie Moose.
In the new movie directed by Durst, Travolta portrays an obsessed fan who stalks his favorite action star, played by Devon Sawa — because when you think ripped action icon, you think the guy whose resume includes playing friendly ghost, a homeless tweaker punk, and a stoner whose hands become possessed by the devil.
As you can see, Travolta is rocking a whole lot of Look in Moose. It’s a collection of life choices, really — and you can tell that he’s not really pleased with any of them:
Travolta looks like a middle-aged Bobby Hill who took a trip to Guy Fieri’s Flavortown and never left. It is, in the words of his apparent style icon, out of bounds. In case you can’t tell from the pic, that’s not a bowl cut; it’s a mullet, which Travolta showed off in another recent set photo — as if the rest of that ensemble wasn’t enough. Clearly, this is the story of a tragic figure, or maybe a newly-single 50-something dad from the midwest who’s like one pitiful cry from help away from appearing on the next season of Queer Eye (would watch).
TMZ recently caught up with Travolta, who said working with Durst was “maybe my favorite experience I’ve had,” and judging by this photo, I am inclined to agree — this might be my favorite experience that Travolta has ever had. “He’s so generous, and such an artist and he allowed me to create a character that no one else would allow,” said Travolta. “I mean, it’s really a wild character and I felt very free to do that.” Almost too free, some might say. And to those people, I say hush your damn mouth and let the artist work.
