The actor, known most prominently for his roles in The Godfather, Misery, and Elf, passed away late on July 6th at the age of 82. Cause not mentioned from the sources I see.
I just read Stephen King's "On Writing" where he talks at length about both his book and the movie adaptation Misery, and he speaks quite fondly of Caan. That movie has been on my "to watch" list for a while, and now I think I will make a concerted effort to watch it this weekend in Caan's honor.
I only watched The Godfather for the first time at the beginning of the pandemic when I was in lockdown with my uncle in Vermont and we passed the time each evening playing movie roulette. Caan was great in that, and seems to have been well-revered in the industry overall. Sad to hear of his passing.
Any other of his movies you all enjoyed?
