In true Corleone fashion, The Godfather director Francis Ford Coppola cast his daughter Sofia as a newborn in
the first film and a teenager in Part III. Son, Roman, played young Sonny Corleone in Part II, and sister, Talia Shire, played Connie. Father, Carmine, composed the scores for the films, and mother, Italia, played the corpse
of Mama Corleone. Nephew Nicolas Cage snagged one
of his first roles on Coppola’s Rumble Fish.
