DIANE KEATON SAYS SHE HELPED AL PACINO GET CAST IN ‘THE GODFATHER:’ In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Diane Keaton explained how she helped Al Pacino get cast in The Godfather. “I auditioned for The Godfather having never read it and I knew nothing about it, and just was there, I was standing there like every other woman. I didn't know what the hell I was there for. And they cast me in that role!” she said. As for the role of Michael Corleone, she said, “Nobody wanted Al Pacino. They didn't want him to play that part, and I had already been cast. I had been cast before Al Pacino in Godfather 1! Is this not weird?” Keaton added, “So I was standing there and they brought him up when I was standing there and we worked together in front of the producers, and they gave him the job. Do you believe that? After he had auditioned before and they didn't want him.”
