John Travolta reportedly told a New York hotel to turn off any music playing before he entered any room during a recent stay.The 'Pulp Fiction' star made the astonishing request at the plush Tribeca Grand leaving other guests completely bemused.One traveller told America's New York Post newspaper: "They had to turn the music off whenever he appeared. Everyone else had been enjoying it."If he'd come out and there'd be music on, he'd go through the kitchen."However, the calls for calm from Travolta - who is a devout Scientologist - have nothing to do with his beliefs.A spokesman for the church, John Carmichael, said: "There are no church prohibitions against any kind of music at all."Meanwhile, Travolta has signed up to play JR Ewing in the big screen version of 80s TV show 'Dallas'.

The movie - which will also reportedly star Jennifer Lopez, Owen Wilson and Shirley Maclaine - will follow the exploits of wealthy Texas oil millionaires and their shady business dealings and dysfunctional personal lives.
