It’s a The Godfather reunion!
On New Year’s Eve, actor James Franco posted an awesome photo of ‘Godfather’ stars Robert Duvall and James Caan ringing in 2015 with the iconic film’s director, Frances Ford Coppola.
“HAPPY GODFATHER NEW YEAR!!!!!” the 36-year-old star captioned the photo.

In the 1972 gangster classic, Robert, 83, played Tom Hagen, Vito Corleone’s informally adopted son, while James, 74, portrayed Sonny Corleone, Vito Corleone’s hot-headed eldest son.
For their roles, Robert received an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor and costar Marlon Brando — who played Vito Corleone, the boss of the Sicilian mafia Corleone family — won the Best Actor statuette.

Though director Francis Ford Coppola, 75, did not win an Academy Award for Best Director, he did take home the Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay Oscars for the hit film that later spawned two sequels: ‘The Godfather Part II’ in 1974 and ‘The Godfather Part III’ in 1990.
