James Caan 1940- 2022

James Edmund Caan was an American actor who was nominated for several awards, including four Golden Globes, an Emmy, and an Oscar. He was famous for playing Sonny Corleone in The Godfather, part 1. And the TV movie Brian’s Song (1970), in which Caan played terminally ill Chicago Bears running back Brian Piccolo, and a generation of men learned it was okay to sob uncontrollably in front of their families.

 

Caan was awarded a motion pictures star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1978. The public imagination typecast him as a tough guy, but Sonny Corleone, the impulsive hothead — that was the exception. When you watched James Caan, you were seeing the drama of a man contemplating his next move and prepared for anything to come.
