          violent mafia gangster Tommy DeVito in the movie "Goodfellas", a role for which he earned an

                                                            -1-
                                                     COMPLAINT
       1.                   d.      Plaintiff was not required to attend the April 12,2011 pressconference.
       2            13.     On or about April 12,2011, Defendant held a press conference at the Sheraton

       3    Hotel in New York. During the pressconference Defendant's representatives formally
       4    announced that Plaintiff had agreed to performthe role of Ruggiero in the Picture. That same
       5 day, in reliance on the Contract, Plaintiff issued the following statement to the press: "I'm really
       6    happy to be makingthis picture        It's going to be greatexperience and a rare opportunity to
       7    look inside the life of Gotti."

       8            14.    Thereafter, Defendants went to great lengths to publicize and tout Plaintiffs
       9    involvement in the Film. For example, shortly after the press conference Defendant posted the
      10 following on its website xxxxxxxxxx                      "Fiore Films announced today thatAcademy
      11    Award-winning actor Joe Pesci has joined their independent production of the mobster tale Gotti:

      12 Three Generations." To this day, Defendant's web site continues to tout and publicize Plaintiffs
      13    role in the Film.

      14            15.    Plaintiffs engagement to play Ruggiero in the Film was also widelyreported by
      15 the press, both in print and on the internet. On its website, Defendant provides links to dozens of

      16    articles all of which mention Plaintiffs role in the Film.

      17            16.    Plaintiffs reported involvement in the Film has brought it great attention and
      18 publicity. There are few, if any, actors alive today who are more closely associated with, and

      19    renowned for, playing Italian-American and mafia roles than Plaintiff. Plaintiffs acclaim in this

      20    genre is all but unmatched with perhaps the exception of fellow actor Al Pacino, who has also

      21    been hired by Defendant to star in the Film. Pacino is well remembered for his critically
      22    acclaimed performance as Michael Corleone in the Godfather trilogy. Pesci's "Goodfellas" and
      23    Pacino's"Godfather" are both regarded as seminal and iconic films in this genre.
      24           17.     On informationand belief, Defendants sought to capitalize on the goodwill and
      25 notoriety associated with having both Pacino and Plaintiffin the same Film; two actors perhaps
3
      26    best known for their memorableand iconic performances playing mafia characters. The

I"!   27 inclusion of these two actors, as well as JohnTravolta, was intended to generate sufficient pre-
      28    sales and financing to finance the production of the Picture. At no time has Defendantever

      1.   portrayal of him.

      2            33.    As a direct and proximate result of Defendant's conduct, Plaintiff has suffered
      3    damages in an amount to be determined at trial, but in excess of $1 million.
      4           34.     In doing theactsalleged herein, Defendant acted willfully, maliciously,
      5    fraudulently, oppressively, and despicably, with the wrongful intention of injuring Plaintiff, with
      6    an improper andevil motive amounting to malice, and in conscious disregard of Plaintiffs rights.
      7    Said actions were done with the intent to vex, harass, annoy and injurePlaintiff. Punitive and
      8    exemplary damages should therefore be assessed in an amount to punish and make an example of
      9    Defendant.

     10                                      THIRD CAUSE OF ACTION

     11            (Misappropriation of Name and Likeness (Civ. C. § 3344) Against all Defendants)
     12           35.     Plaintiffre-alleges and incorporates by reference each and every allegation in
     13    Paragraphs 1 through 34 above.

     14           36.     Defendant is knowingly using Plaintiffs namefor purposes of: 1)generating
     15    publicity and "buzz" for the Film in the public marketplace in order to increase the profitability
     16    of the Film; 2) attracting investors, lenders and financiers to finance the production of the Film;
     17    3) enhancing the value of the Film to sell to buyers in foreign territories and using the proceeds
     18    of such foreign pre-sales to partially finance the production of the Film; and 4) attracting other
     19    high-caliber talent to the Film project.

     20           37.     Among other things, Defendant has actively touted Plaintiffs involvement in the
     21    Picture and has informed members of the public and pressthat Plaintiffis playing the role of
     22    Ruggiero in the Film. Defendant has also posted a picture of Plaintiff on its web site with an
     23    announcement regarding Plaintiffs involvement in the Film. Literally hundreds of articles have
     24    been published or broadcast over the internet which mention Plaintiffs involvement in the Film,
     25    including but not limited to the authoritative motionpicture web site IMDB.com (the internet
     26    movie database). Defendant has provided links on its web site to many of these articles. Further,
•J

     27    on information and belief, Defendant has used Plaintiffs name and likeness in marketing
     28    materials, promotional materials, and other materials submitted to potential investors, financiers,

                                                           -±
                                                      COMPLAINT
1.   and other third parties. It is now widely known by the public that Plaintiff is involved in
2    Defendant's Film, yet Defendant isconcurrently denying to Plaintiff that the Contract exists and
3    further denying that Plaintiff hasany role in the Film.
4           38.     Defendant does not have Plaintiffs consent to use his name and likeness to

5    promote the Picture absent Defendant's full performance under the Contract, which Defendant
6    has repudiated.

7           39.        Defendants, in violation of Civ. C. § 3344, have infringed upon and

 8   misappropriated Plaintiffs name, likeness and identity for Defendant's commercial purposes,
 9   without Plaintiffs consent or authorization. Defendantknowingly misappropriated Plaintiffs

10   name and likeness for the purpose ofadvertising and selling and promoting the Film. Defendant
11   thereby caused and is causing injury to Plaintiff.
12           40.       As a direct and proximate result ofsuch infringement and misappropriation by
13   Defendant, Plaintiff has been damaged in a sum (including profits from Defendant's
14   unauthorized use) exceeding the jurisdictional minimum of the Court, such sum to be precisely
15   determined according to proof at trial. Plaintiff will amend orseek leave ofCourt to amend the
16   Complaint to state the precise amount ofsuch damages when the same has been ascertained.
17           41.       Defendant's misappropriation was intentional (not accidental), deliberate, willful
18   and/or in reckless disregard of the likelihood it would injure Plaintiff.
19           42.       Defendant committed and engaged in the above-described acts with oppression,

20   fraud and malice, with a conscious disregard for Plaintiffs rights, and with the intent to vex,

21   injure and annoy Plaintiff. Defendant's acts therefore warrant the assessment ofpunitive
22   damages in a sum appropriate to punish and set an example of Defendant.
23           43.       Plaintiff has been compelled to retain legal counsel to enforce his rights and has
24    incurred, and will continue to incur, legal fees and costs which Plaintiff is entitled to recover
25   pursuant to Civ. C. § 3344, at or following trial orother judgment in Plaintiffs favor.

     3    Defendant hasearned from the exploitation of the Film, which monies should be disgorged to

    13    amount appropriate to punish and make an example of Defendants;

    14            3.     On the Third and Fourth Causes of Action only, for an order requiring Defendants

    15    to disgorge and pay to Plaintiff all monies and profits earned through Defendants'

    16    misappropriation of Plaintiffs likeness;

    17            4.     On the Third Cause of Action only, for all attorneys' fees incurred by Plaintiff, if

    18    allowed by the Court, whether by contract, statute or otherwise;

    19            5.     For costs of suit incurred herein; and

    20            6.     For such other and further relief as the Court may deem just and proper.
