HARVEY Weinstein may have something else to worry about apart from his spoiled reputation, Hollywood ousting, class action lawsuit, and multiple investigations.

TMZ asked Goodfellas star Paul Sorvino for his opinion about the accusation that Weinstein black-listed hsi daughter, Mira Sorvino, after harassing the actress. The actor did not mince words about his distaste for Weinstein.

Mira Sorvino, who is perhaps best known for her role in Woody Allen's Mighty Aphrodite, and Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, first spoke up about Weinstein for Ronan Farrow's groundbreaking New Yorker expose.

In the article, Sorvino, who starred in several films Weinstein produced, details how Weinstein sexually harassed her and tried to pressure her into having a sexual relationship with him while they were working together.

This came to a head during the Toronto International Film Festival in 1995 when Weinstein started to massage Sorvino's shoulders without her permission.

She managed to escape the encounter, but the producer continued to harass her.

Mira Sorvino was initially nervous to come forward with her story, but she has since opened up about it, even writing an article about sexual harassment for Time.

Sorvino is one of many accusers who have filed a class-action lawsuit against Weinstein, which claims that the Weinstein Company had a long history of black-listing actresses who were Weinstein's alleged victims.

Her name is joined by Rose McGowan, Angelina Jolie, Daryl Hannah, Ashley Judd, Gwyneth Paltrow and Paz de la Huerta, among others.

When asked by TMZ about the black-listing plot launched against his daughter, Paul Sorvino said, "If I were to answer you, I might put everybody in jeopardy. But if I meet [Harvey Weinstein] on the street, he better, he ought to hope that he goes to jail because if we come across, I think he'll be lying on the floor somehow. Magically."

He then added, "Good for him if he goes [to jail] because if not he has to meet me. And I'll kill the motherfucker."

The actor also denied knowing about the accusations, saying that if he did know, Weinstein would have been in a wheelchair. Plus, we've all see what Paul (aka "Paulie") can do with garlic, so watch your back, Harvey!
