DER US-AMERIKANISCHE SCHAUSPIELER JAMES CAAN IST GESTORBEN

DER US-AMERIKANISCHE SCHAUSPIELER JAMES CAAN IST GESTORBEN

07.07.2022 Der am 26. März 1940 in New York geborene US-amerikanische Schauspieler James Caan (Bild) ist am 6. Juli 2022 in Los Angeles gestorben. Weltberühmt wurde er durch seine Rolle als Sonny Corleone im Filmklassiker "The Godfather" (Der Pate, 1972) von Francis Ford Coppola. Später übernahm er zahlreiche Hauptrollen in Produktionen wie dem Actionfilm "Rollerball" (1975), dem Kriegsfilm "A Bridge Too Far" (Die Brücke von Arnheim, 1977) von Richard Attenborough, dem Thriller "Thief" (Der Einzelgänger, 1981) von Michael Mann, der Stephen-King-Adaption "Misery" (1990) von Rob Reiner, der Komödie "Honeymoon in Vegas" (1992) von Andrew Bergmann oder dem Experimentalfilm "Dogville" (2003) von Lars von Trier.

Francis Ford Coppola, Al Pacino, Barbra Streisand and More Pay Tribute to James Caan: "An Incredible, Towering Actor"

Hollywood stars took to social media to remember and pay tribute to the legendary actor who died Thursday at the age of 82.

As an actor, Caan wasn’t always as tough as many people thought he was onscreen. Apart from his role as Corleone, he sang and danced in 1982’s “Kiss Me Goodbye” and in 1975’s “Funny Lady,” where he played Billy Rose to Barbra Streisand’s Fanny Brice and wound up nominated for a Golden Globe. As an author in 1990’s “Misery,” he found himself at the mercy of Kathy Bates’ obsessed fan Annie Wilkes.

And sure, he was on Santa’s Naughty List as Walter in 2003’s “Elf,” but Will Ferrell’s giddy character, Buddy, (Walter’s long-lost son) eventually fixed that.

James Caan, the curly-haired tough guy known to movie fans as the hotheaded Sonny Corleone of “The Godfather” and to television audiences as both the dying football player in the classic weeper “Brian’s Song” and the casino boss in “Las Vegas,” has died.

He proved, beyond his tough-guy exterior, a versatile performer of wry expressiveness and unexpected vulnerability

James Caan, a Hollywood leading man of the 1970s who memorably displayed his tough-guy screen presence as the trigger-happy Mafioso Sonny Corleone in “The Godfather” but who also proved, beyond his macho exterior, a versatile performer of wry expressiveness and unexpected vulnerability, died July 6 at 82.

A Bronx native, he starred in countless movies and TV shows, but was most closely identified with the volatile character Sonny Corleone.

Remembering James Caan: He Played Hotheads and Roughnecks, Brilliantly Exposing Their Humanity

It in no way shortchanges the brilliance of James Caan, who died Wednesday at 82, to point out that he had a special gift for playing insensitive men. He was a gruff, tough, raging, muscular actor, with a ramrod physicality and an imposing look: the wiry curls of brownish-blond hair, the handsome planed face that seemed carved out of granite, the mouth set in a scowl that was a challenge and often a threat.

The Godfather star James Caan dies aged 82

Actor who played Sonny Corleone in the groundbreaking 1972 epic engineered a comeback after his career went off the rails in the early 1980s

Berühmt wurde der Hollywoodschauspieler durch "Der Pate", "Misery" und "Rollerball". Dabei hatte er zunächst so ziemlich alles andere als die Schauspielerei im Kopf.

Vom Mafioso zum Opfer einer Wahnsinnigen

Caan war während sechs Jahrzehnten als Schauspieler aktiv. Nach Rollen auf Theaterbühnen und in Fernsehsendungen gab ihm Billy Wilder 1963 den ersten kleinen Filmauftritt in «Das Mädchen Irma La Douce». Howard Hawks holte ihn für den Rennfahrerstreifen «Rote Linie 7000» (1965) vor die Kamera und dann noch einmal an der Seite von John Wayne und Robert Mitchum in dem Western «El Dorado». Durch Francis Ford Coppolas Mafia-Meisterwerk «Der Pate» wurde Caan schliesslich zum Star.
