After early roles in films such as El Dorado, Caan came into prominence in the 1970s with significant roles in films such as Brian's Song (1971) The Godfather (1972), The Gambler (1974), Rollerball (1975), and A Bridge Too Far (1977). Some of Caan's subsequent notable performances include roles in Thief (1981), Misery (1990), For the Boys (1991) and Elf (2003), as well as the role of "Big Ed" Deline in the television series Las Vegas (2003-2008). For his role in The Godfather, he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.
Caan was born on March 26, 1940, in the Bronx, New York, the son of Sophie (née Falkenstein; June 24, 1915 – January 18, 2016) and Arthur Caan, Jewish immigrants from Germany. His father was a meat dealer and butcher. One of three siblings, Caan grew up in Sunnyside, Queens. He was educated in New York City, and later attended Michigan State University. He later transferred to Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, but did not graduate. His classmates at Hofstra included Francis Ford Coppola and Lainie Kazan.
Caan has been married four times. In 1961, he married Dee Jay Mathis; they divorced in 1966. They had a daughter, Tara (born 1964). Caan's second marriage to Sheila Marie Ryan (a former girlfriend of Elvis Presley's) in 1976 was short-lived; they divorced the following year.

Caan was married to Ingrid Hajek from September 1990 to March 1994; they had a son, Alexander James Caan, born 1991. He married Linda Stokes on October 7, 1995, they have two sons, James Arthur Caan (born 1995) and Jacob Nicholas Caan (born 1998). They divorced in 2009, citing irreconcilable differences.

James Caan has five children and four grandchildren, three from his eldest daughter Tara and one from his son Scott.
