Default Who else can pull off the role of Michael Corleone?

Past or Present, Dead or Alive?

Robert Downey Jr. comes to mind

If I was casting a remake (and I'm sure those bastards are planning to, they're doing a Scarface remake... focused on the Mexican cartel ). It'd look like this:

Vito- Robert Deniro or James Gandolfini
Michael- Joseph Gordon Leavitt
Fredo- Paul Dano
Sonny- Tom Hardy
Hagen- Michael Fassbender

Robert Downey Jr.? No way. He's a great actor, but I have yet to see him be able to say something without sounding like a smart alec. He just cannot get rid of that smirking energy he gives off, and it wouldn't work for Michael.

I can't think of anyone that could play Michael other than a young Pacino. He just had this unique simmering intensity underneath the surface that no other actor possesses.

I feel like Buscemi would have to be in the movie as well. Maybe as Fredo.

LAWL dumbass. So what if Sicily is an island. So is Cyprus, so is Corsica. What's your point? All three are still populated by white Europeans. Are you trying to proclaim that sicilians are their own ethnicity? because they're midgets and have dark hair?

Sicilians look just like normal mediterranean white people

because they are.
