Since strutting onto the big screen in "Saturday Night Fever," John Travolta's career has been one of dramatic ups and downs, from comeback king to Internet meme.The Oscar incidents come at a time when Travolta, 61, is prepping a handful of projects and ahead of the release of an explosive documentary on Scientology that focuses considerably on Travolta's relationship with the organization.LOW: The 1980s weren't nearly as good to Travolta as the '70s. He worked consistently, but in a string of flops like "Perfect," in which he played a Rolling Stone reporter, and "Two of a Kind," which reteamed him with "Grease" co-star Olivia Newton-John. Many of the films he turned down (like "American Gigolo") were more successful than the films he chose to make.The director specifically sought out Travolta, even though Daniel Day-Lewis, fresh off his Oscar win for "My Left Foot," reportedly wanted the part.The book and Gibney's upcoming documentary, made with Wright, are critical of Travolta for being a public face to the controversial organization.
