Caan Says, "I'm the Pig!"

2/14/2008 4:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It sure looked to us like James Caan called Francis Ford Coppola a pig outside of Mr. Chow last weekend -- but he says it was a gigantic misunderstanding.

An autograph hound showed Jimmy a pic and mentioned Coppola's name. Jimmy then said, "What a pig." Caan's rep says the pic showed Jimbo's bullet-riddled body from "The Godfather" and when he said, "What a pig," he was referring to himself. You buyin' it? Watch the video and vote.

Slow news day, eh, TMZ?

No one cares about James Caan. Why don't you put up something that
is newsworthy?

Seems like TMZ doesn't have much to offer since Brit has been MIA.

My father had a bit part in Rabbit Run filmed in our home town. He was on the set many days with James Caan and he had nothing but good things to say about him being "a real guy" and down to earth. He played cards with the bit players who wanted to play to pass the time. My Father was a tough person and had an uncanny ability to read "phoniness" in anyone. If he said James Caan was a good guy I believe it. He is also a real actor, unlike the many names touted on this website as actors.

Caan rocks. Give the guy a break. This smells suspiciously like TMZ creating something out of nothing.

James IS a PIG. Any one that ever worked the set of LAS VEGAS knows that the set was kept at 60 degrees when James was there a) so he could see all the extras hard nipples (because he's a pig) and b) because over 60 degrees and he sweats uncontrollably (because he's a pig). Not to mention, he publically commented on and judged all the girls' bodies -- He really liked this 19 year old Black girl from Oshkosh, WI dressed in stripper gear.

OINK!

He's not talking about either, he's referring to the guy who handed him Coppola's photo to autograph.

YES IT'S TRUE THAT THE SET OF LAS VEGAS PRIMARILY CASTS NON-UNION HOOCHIES UNDER THE AGE OF 24 WHO WERE PAID $60 A DAY , AND WHO DO NOT LOOK LIKE THEY 'RE EVEN OLD ENOUGH TO GAMBLE....YES, THEY WERE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF, DRESSED SCANTILY,OBJECTIFIED. BUT BLAME GARY SCOTT THOMPSON FOR THAT, NOT CAAN. IF THEY EMPLOYED MORE SAG ACTORS WITH RESUME'S INSTEAD OF 95% NON-UNION ACTOR/ STRIPPERS/ WHATEVERS, MAYBE MORE RESPECT WOULD BE GIVEN. I WAS A SAG ACTOR ON THE SHOW, NO DISRESPECT OF ANY KIND FROM CAAN, DID NOT HAVE TO WEAR HOOCHIE CLOTHES, RESPECTFUL PART. YOU GET WHAT YOU PUT OUT THERE.

I've heard nothing but great things about James Caan, but the Gary Scott Thompson stuff wouldn't surprise me. He's actually got a Molly Sims shrine in his office of mostly her Sports Illustrated swimsuit pictures. It's pretty skeezy considering he's 1) married, and 2) her boss.

I'm sure Caan left "Las Vegas" because of Molly's terrible acting, and Thompson's ridiculous casting and scripts. The show looked like a junior high school, not a casino.

He's Boring now    

Maybe if tough guy Caan had spent less time at the hefner mansion and more at home he wouldnt have the problems he does with that son of his.

The man is a disgrace as to what a man should be in life, he's led a lie of a life. imho. I could be wrong.
