Regardless of whether Bo Dietl becomes mayor in real life he’ll always have an onscreen mayoralty. Dietl was set to play the mayor of New York City in a movie scene being filmed Saturday afternoon, shortly after his appearance at Council Member Eric Ulrich’s Howard Beach campaign office opening.
By Dietl’s description he’s currently cast in small roles in two movies. One, filmed Saturday, is Clinton Road in which he’ll play the mayor. He also reports that he’s cast as union leader/mobster Joe Glimco in Martin Scorcese’s The Irishman, scheduled to film in mid-November. Dietl has been in quite a number of movies, including GoodFellas, The Wolf of Wall Street, Carlito’s Way and One Tough Cop.
