    James Caan passed away today - I loved him in The Godfather, Elf, Misery, and the original version of Rollerball. My favorite was the pseudo gangster in Honeymoon in Vegas.
    Thanks Mr. Caan, you gave us a lot of great entertainment.

    Let's not forget he also played the President in "Get Smart":


    And back in 1969, he appeared as a villain on the original "Get Smart":

    James Caan played a lot of parts in many films and TV shows over a long career - and usually shined in all of them (even when the show was....meh otherwise).

    And - remember who wrote for Get Smart - Mel Brookes and Buck Henry...

    "Thief" and "Rollerball" are by far my favorite performances of his. I would also recommend "The Killer Elite" directed by Sam Peckinpah and reunited with his "Godfather" co-star Robert Duvall.

    Pierce Brosnan released a couple of pictures of him and Caan taken on the set of what will be Caan's last movie:
