James Caan died from a heart attack, according to the official cause of death.


The 82-year-old actor, best known for his roles in films like ‘The Godfather’ and ‘Misery,’ died in early July at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center after a “heart attack” and “coronary artery disease,” according to docs acquired by TMZ on Saturday.

The publication further claimed that James had “chronic obstructive pulmonary disease” – also known as COPD – and that he had been diagnosed with it.

Sheila, his second and final wife, died in 2012 at the age of 59 following a long battle with cancer, leaving him with five children from separate relationships: Tara, 57; Scott, 45; Alexander, 31; James, 26; and Jacob, 23.

James’s death was announced by his family on Twitter, where they asked for privacy during what they described as a “tough moment.”


The following is what the family said on Twitter: “Jimmy passed away on July 6th, and we’d want to share the sad news with you. Because of the outpouring of love and sincere sympathies, the family appreciates your continued respect for their privacy at this time of loss.”

Pierce Brosnan paid tribute to James’ “inspirational” co-star Pierce Brosnan on social media immediately after his death in the upcoming action film ‘Fast Charlie.’

Pierce captioned an Instagram snapshot of the two of them on site with the following: “”Fast Charlie” star James Cann [sic] and I bid him farewell on the set of the film. During our five days in New Orleans, we shared many a joke. Seeing you work every day in spite of excruciating physical agony and discomfort was an inspiration to me as a young actor just starting out.”


It is expected that ‘Fast Charlie’ will be launched in March of 2023.
