I don't know, he just looked out of place or not in rhythm with the rest. I fully except I'm alone in this.

The brothers (and sister) all had very different characters. Supposedly different aspects of The Don.

He was fairer in colour than the others but you do get fairer Sicilians. Something to do with Germanic and Viking invasions. No, really.


He's a lot more dynamic than a lot of the other actors (many extras were non-actors and some were Italian actors brought over so there's a change of pace there) and certainly his character was more hot-headed than most of the made guys (that's proven mafia killers to those not in the know *taps nose*) .. a lot of more senior mafiosi are portrayed as cold and calculating, which Caan's character was not. Which was exactly his weakness and which got him killed.
