Well, to make a long story short, James Caan is Jewish!
Since James Caan's mother is Jewish, and in Orthodox Judaism and Conservative Judaism, those with a Jewish mother (or those who underwent a halakhic conversion) are considered Jewish, then that makes him Jewish. His father is Jewish too.
James Caan (whose full birth name is James Edmund Caan) was born on March 26, 1940 in The Bronx, New York City, U.S..
He is best known for his starring roles in The Godfather, Thief, Misery, A Bridge Too Far, Brian's Song, Rollerball, Kiss Me Goodbye, Elf, and El Dorado.
