Fredo, I knew it was you !

funko_godfather_4

Funko Pop! has just released an entire The Godfather line.  My favorite of the bunch is, of course, Fredo.  The exploited mobster Vegas burnout that could never catch a break, even from his brothers .  Poor Fredo, he’s all full of a broken heart and completely tarnished cause he’s the last pick of the litter as head of the Corleone family.  But what makes Fredo so iconic as a washed up gangster and as a cinematic cult figure is the actor that portrayed him, John Cazale.  The ONLY actor ever to bat a thousand by acting as a supporting actor in five films that EACH won a Best Picture Oscar, and get this, CONSECUTIVELY ! ! !

Unfortunately, due to illness, he didn’t get to move further into many more roles.  If you want to see an amazing documentary about him and his rise to greatness, check out “I Knew It Was You: Discovering John Cazale”
