Don Vito Corleone - nobody else

Post by Tedlark »

After just watching, and enjoying, for about the 10,000th time, I just can't imagine Frank Sinatra, Orson Welles, Ernest Borgnine, Burt Lancaster, Laurence Olivier, Anthony Quinn, Edward G. Robinson, Paul Scofield, George C. Scott, or Danny Thomas, portraying Don Vito Corleone any better than Marlon Brando. They were all considered for the role.

Robert Redford was considered for Michael.

Reminds me to start watching Boardwalk Empire again. I have the set. I probably watched Godfather one and two a thousand times with my dad.

You are correct sir. And Elvis Presley thought he'd be a good fit for Vito Corleone as well.
