Where would John Cazale be if he was still alive?
John Gazale was one of my favorite actors. He only played in five movies before dying of cancer, but all of them were nominated for Best pictures, and all of them I could (and did) watch again and again:
He was known by his first name in all those rolls. He excelled playing all those characters - Fredo at The 2 Godfathers, stosh at The Deer Hunter, Stan at The conversation and Sal at Dog Day Afternoon
And where would we be if he never existed? Streepless and Pacinoless
Extra: Moe Green (Alex Rocco) in Jack Woltz bedroom scene

I'm thinking he would have continued in carefully selecting interesting roles in the fashion that Johnny Depp has so successfully done. Sadly, even death didn't spare him the embarrassment from appearing in the stinker sequel GF III !

Opinions on Godfather 3 are split between those who loved it & those who didn't. I belong to the second group. I think it was very much a duplication of the same thematic concepts of the first two, and as such, an awesome recreation

Where would he be today? Holding 3-4 Oscars! You don't need to look much past the Fredo/Michael scene at the house in Tahoe to know who the best actor in the movie is. Watch the scene again and look at Fredos eyes when he screem "It aint what I wanted!" Truly amazing.
