James and his eldest son, Scott, who is also an actor, were very close. Here’s everything we know about him…
WHO IS JAMES CAAN’S SON, SCOTT?
Scott Caan is an American actor who is 45 years old. He is best known for his roles in films and TV shows such as Hawaii Five-0, Varsity Blues, Into the Blues, Ocean’s Eleven and more.

He also has a seven year old daughter with his partner whose name is Josie James Caan.
Scott is the only child of James’ second wife, Sheila Caan, to whom he was married from 1976-1977.
JAMES DID NOT WANT HIS SON TO BE AN ACTOR
It’s no secret that James Caan and his son Scott were very close.
Scott is one of James’ few children to follow in his footsteps and become an actor. But in a 2017 interview, the Hawaii Five-0 star said his father didn’t want him to get into show business.
“My father didn’t want me to work in business. He knew it was going to be hard to keep doing this job, and it’s hard to be creative when you’ve been playing the same guy for seven years. said Scott.
But even though Scott’s father, James, didn’t want him to be an actor, Scott had a successful career. He and his dad even collaborated in the 2015 movie Mercy, which Scott also wrote.
James played his father in the film.
