James Caan dead at 82


Recommended Posts

His best work was as Sonny Corleone in "The Godfather" I always thought. I read somewhere that he wanted the part of Michael, and even screen tested for it. But I guess Coppola knew what he was doing...

I can picture him beating Carlo with a trash can lid...RIP

I watched an episode of "Combat!" (my favorite TV show as a kid) not too long ago, and a young James Caan was a guest star as a German soldier... I think it was from like 1963...So he had to be around 23 or so....

Um, wasn't he Elf's real dad and figured out the real meaning of Christmas?
