Actor James Caan died on the evening of January 6 at the age of 82, according to his family. No cause of death has been given. Caan burst onto the scene, an 'overnight success' after ten years in the business with a one-two punch of the 1971 ABC Movie of the Week Brian's Song, for which he was Emmy nominated in the role of Brian Piccolo, and the 1972 classic The Godfather, for which he was Oscar nominated in the role of Sonny Corleone. Prior to those breakthrough roles, Caan appeared in guest starring roles on TV in Naked City (his first credit), Route 66, The Untouchables, Dr. Kildare, Ben Casey, Death Valley Days, Combat!, The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, Wagon Train, The F.B.I. and Get Smart. Pre-Godfather film roles include an uncredited role in Irma la Douce, Lady in a Cage, Countdown, Rabbit Run and T.R. Baskin. After The Godfather, Caan's movie career took off with credits that include Slither, Cinderella Liberty, Freebie and the Bean, Funny Lady, Rollerball, The Killer Elite, Silent Movie, Harry and Walter Go To New York, A Bridge Too Far, Comes a Horseman, 1941 (uncredited cameo), Thief, Kiss Me Goodbye, Alien Nation, Dick Tracy, Misery, Honeymoon in Vegas, Bottle Rocket, Eraser, The Yards, City of Ghosts, Dogville, Elf, Get Smart, Mercy, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, That's My Boy, Blood Ties and Queen Bees. He has at least one film yet to be released, Fast Charlie. Caan didn't completely give up television, but after a guest appearance on Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In in 1972, his next official TV credit -- not counting the expanded The Godfather Saga mini-series -- was a 1996 episode of NewsRadio. After that he had more frequent on and off-screen credits including TV movies Poodle Springs, Warden of Red Rock, A Glimpse of Hell, Lathe of Heaven, Blood Crime, The Incredible Mrs. Ritchie and JL Family Ranch 2. Guest credits include Crossing Jordan, The Simpsons, Family Guy, and The Annoying Orange. Caan made a guest appearance on Hawaii Five-O which starred his son Scott, and was a regular on Las Vegas, Magic City and Back in the Game. He also provided the voice of Sonny Corleone in four Godfather videogames.
