‘Godfather’ star James Caan has now passed away at the age of 82.

As The Daily Wire reports:

James Caan, the Oscar-nominated actor whose roles ranged from Mafia scion Sonny Corleone in “The Godfather” to the brooding father of an overgrown imp in the Christmas classic “Elf,” has died at 82.

Caan, whose Hollywood career began in 1964 with a small role in “Lady in a Cage,” and acted as recently as last year in the romantic comedy “Queen Bees,” died Wednesday evening, according to family.

“It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Jimmy on the evening of July 6,” a statement said that was posted to Caan’s Twitter account. “The family appreciates the outpouring of love and heartfelt condolences and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time.”

Caan’s cause of death has so far not yet been revealed.
