Nicolas Cage Begged For Role In The Godfather
Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, Nicolas Cage revealed that he begged his uncle, Francis Ford Coppola, for a role in The Godfather Part III. More specifically, he wanted to play the character that Andy Garcia ended up playing.
The actor said, “My uncle was doing The Godfather Part III and I said I would like to be in it. I wanted to be chosen.”
“He wanted to cast Andy Garcia in the role, but I tried to convince him that I was a better fit for the character. I could convince as a son of James Caan.”
