Nicolas Cage Apparently Begged To Be In The Godfather: Part III, And It’s Kind Of A Good Thing That He Didn’t Get The Part

No matter how much an actor of any skill level may plead, there are some roles that remain just out of reach. Even a cinematic deity of madness and craft like Nicolas Cage knows this reality, as he begged his own uncle for a role in The Godfather Part III, but failed to land the gig. It’s kind of a good thing he didn’t get the part though, as the star of 2021’s sleeper hit Pig could have been in an awkward situation.

The Godfather Part III That Nicolas Cage Begged To Land

During this year’s Actor’s Roundtable from THR, Nicolas Cage was present alongside fellow buzz-worthy performers Andrew Garfield, Jonathan Majors, Simon Rex and Peter Dinklage. The annual discussion of hot topics and interesting career stories yielded another crop of behind-the-scenes facts that are pretty mind-blowing. Leave it to Nicolas Cage to have a story like the one he told about asking Francis Ford Coppola to play the role of Vincent Corleone in The Godfather Part III

This is a very embarrassing answer to your question, OK, because it involves family. So Uncle was doing Godfather 3, and I said, ‘I really think I ought to be in your movie, Uncle. I really think it’s a good idea if you would cast me. I think I could play this part.’ He was going to cast Andy Garcia, and I said, ‘But I just see myself more as James Caan’s son, and he’s playing Sonny’s son. He’s not playing Michael’s son. He’s Sonny’s son. I just feel a little more James Caan.’ It just wasn’t going to happen. Nope, not going to happen. So that was a movie I didn’t get let in that I really wanted to be in. There.
