And Almost Starring

Episode 46 - The Godfather

April 13, 2021

On our second week of Oscars Month, we’re looking at everyone up for one of the most acclaimed films of all time, The Godfather, and whether anyone else would have touched Marlon Brando’s iconic Academy Award-winning turn as Don Vito Corleone! Which Godfather actor almost wound up playing a completely different role? Which rock and roll singer auditioned for Tom Hagen? And Brando was voted the champion of what during filming?? Also – the Godfather/sitcom mashup you never knew you wanted, and Jeff and Amy Jo learn the hard way to not watch The Godfather on an empty stomach!


The Godfather stars Al Pacino, Marlon Brando, James Caan, Diane Keaton, Robert Duvall, Richard S. Castellano, Sterling Hayden, Abe Vigoda, Al Martino, Morgana King, and John Cazale; directed by Francis Ford Coppola
