In 1972 Marlon Brando played Vito Corleone in The Godfather. Two years later Robert DeNiro played the same character only a lot younger in The Godfather Part II. They both did a great job and both got an Oscar for the role.
Recently (today, actually) I started thinking… If they made the godfather today could DeNiro play the older Vito?
Imagine him with the proper make-up, hair and other stuff like that. I think it would work, not that I want to see it. Who wants to see a remake of The Godfather?
What do you think? Yay or Nay?
And while we are on the subject, who would play a younger Vito to DeNiro’s older?
Ryan Gosling? Tom Hardy? Joseph Gordon-Levitt? Or aren’t they Italian enough?
