JOHN TRAVOLTA and JAMES GANOLFINI had a close relationship. But their relationship went far beyond the set. On "Good Morning America" yesterday, John said, quote, "My father sold tires to his father. I was his inspiration to get into the business . . . he would see pictures of me on the wall from movies and he decided that he wanted to be an actor." John added that James was there for him when HIS 16-year-old son Jett died unexpectedly of a seizure in 2009....I wonder if it was like The Sopranos where a mobster swings by with an envelope stuffed full of bills every week.
