Goodfellas and Sopranos actors who also acted in the Godfather films

As the son of Tony Lip, Nick Vallenlonga has both lived in his beloved father’s shadow and benefited from it. When Coppola and his casting director at Copacabana caught the eye of his father while looking for just the right background actors for the opening scene of The Godfather, they asked him if he had any children who could also attend the wedding festivities.

Recalling in 2012 that he had to hang out with James Caan a lot, Vallenlonga enjoyed being in Brando’s presence, saying: “I was just studying him and watching him put that thing in his mouth so that he could.” his jaws opened. It was really interesting walking around and following the cameras.” He added, “It was my first time seeing a movie being made and I was hooked.”

He continued to work in the background and had supporting roles in films such as East Money, Splash, Prizzi’s Honor and was a prison mate of Henry Hill in Goodfellas, who watched Hill’s wife take out her jealous anger on him by he throws his contraband around. Although he did not star in The Sopranos, he played Carmine Caputo in the prequel film The Many Saints of Newark.

Vallenlonga had also branched out into producing, directing and writing with his screenplay for Deadfall, directed by Coppola’s nephew Christopher and co-starring with his brother Nicholas Cage. He channeled all of his efforts to bring the true life story of his father’s breathtaking road trip across the South with Don Shirley into a feature film, in which he wrote and starred in 2018’s “Green Book.” While his father (and Shirley) didn’t live to see the film, the son made him proud by earning two Oscars for Best Screenplay and Best Picture.
