This role was cast perfectly. Pacino was born for this one. Saying that I went with DeNiro
I’ll agree with Vinny of course…perfect end choice in Pacino. I went with Stockwell as he (& DeNiro too of course) would not only have the look needed for the Corleone family but as an actor I could see him having the sensitivity to play this role.
I went with Alain Delon, but like you and Vin I wouldnt trade in Pacino for anything.
I have trouble imagining any of the listed actors in the role except De Niro and Stockwell, and of the two I went with Stockwell since De Niro fits so perfectly into his role in the film(s) that he eventually got.
This list only makes me happier that Pacino got the role.
