Carmine Caridi played two different roles in The Godfather film franchise. His role in the second film was heavily involved in the feud with Frank Pentangeli while in the third film he essayed Albert Volpe, who is murdered at one hotel in Atlantic City.

According to studio executive Robert Evans, filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola initially chose Carmine Caridi for playing Sonny Corleone in The Godfather but he overruled Francis since he thought that Carmine was too tall for this role, which then went to actor James Caan.

In 2004, Carmine Caridi was dismissed from the Academy after he was accused of leaking screeners. He and Russell Sprague were sued by Time Warner and Sony on civil charges of copyright infringement. He was then cleared of wrongdoing.
