Lange worked with Kubrick on 2001: A Space Odyssey. He is pretty much a specialist in designing plausible sci-fi sets, props and costumes, having worked for the US military illustrating manuals for fighter-pilots and worked for NASA with the legendary Wernher von Braun designing space-ships. Pretty crazy stuff.
He was also a production designer for George Lucas on The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, and on the James Bond film Moonraker.
Jackass has a pending pick, Vapid has 3 pending picks.
And Rizko is on the clock.

Okay the trade and free-agent period is on (24 hours). Once it's over we'll start posting write-ups. But, by all means, if you're happy with your team and aren't going to tweak, post your write-up whenever you want.
I'll quote the rules below:

How well do people think Orson Welles would play the role of Don Croce?
Don Croce Malo – The extremely powerful Capo Di Capi who wields power not only in the entire island of Sicily but also in Rome and with the Italian government. A legendary negotiator, Don Croce quickly rises to the head of the Mafia and early into Turi Guiliano's career, is eager to make Guiliano the heir to his Mafia empire, but is unable to do so, due to Guiliano's deep hatred of the Mafia. As Guiliano's daring exploits increase and after Guiliano assassinates six prominent Mafia leaders and severely damages his interests, Don Croce takes the decision to kill Guiliano.
This is fat Orson Welles like in Touch of Evil:
The book says Don Croce is disgustingly fat, and Orson looks pretty bad in that pic.
Vito is only in for the last 5 mins (he's only in the last chapter and it's only about 5 pages), Croce has a lot more screen time, but Croce isn't quite as iconic and his dialogue isn't as important as Vito's. Vito basically gives Micheal his first lesson as a mafia boss on how to survive. Though on the other hand the movie, while part of the Godfather universe, isn't quite a sequel/prequel movie so if one were to separate the movie from both Godfathers then Vito's speech loses some of it's importance.
