Actor James Caan attends the 41st Annual Chaplin Award Gala at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts on April 28, 2014 in New York City.

James Caan was one of my favorite actors – and the best actors – of all time, and I love so many of his movies! He could play any role and do it with ease.

Sadly, we lost James Caan on Thursday, at the age of 82.

Caan’s death was confirmed via his official Twitter and even included his customary sign-off of “End of Tweet.” The tweet stated, “It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Jimmy on the evening of July 6. The family appreciates the outpouring of love and heartfelt condolences and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time. End of tweet”

I’ve enjoyed many a bag of popcorn watching so many of his films, and here are four of my favorites!

  • The Godfather: Part 2

  • Elf

  • Misery

  • El Dorado
