James Caan: ‘The Films I Reject Become Classics’

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If James Caan decides to give up acting, he still can earn a good living rejecting scripts.

The Las Vegas star says he’s turned down so many scripts for films that eventually became classics that he is thinking of starting a business where the studios send him the scripts they’re considering.

In his words, “The ones I hate, they should put all their money into.”

One film Caan didn’t reject that has become a classic is his 1971 TV-movie, Brian’s Song, where he plays cancer-stricken Chicago Bears running back Brian Piccolo.

The film airs tonight (Jun. 27) on TV Land and, true to his image, Caan admits he almost rejected it because he wanted nothing to do with a tearjerker.
