Ruddy is accompanied to a meeting with Marlon Brando by Mario Puzo and Francis Ford Coppola. The actor admits that he only decided to play Vito Corleone during the discussion because Frank Sinatra despises ‘The Godfather,’ and the two have a personal grudge. Nonetheless, Brando’s brief appearance as Vito Corleone satisfies Coppola, Puzo, and Ruddy. Impressed by Brando’s dedication to the character, Coppola insists on Brando and Al Pacino playing the film’s two leads.

Evans is opposed to hiring Brando and Pacino. Meanwhile, Ruddy and Francoise’s relationship deteriorates, and they seek couple counseling. During a session, Ruddy declares that he just doesn’t want to work as a producer with Francoise but still adores her. Francoise is brokenhearted and chooses to leave Ruddy. Ruddy goes over Evans’ back and meets with Charles Bluhdorn to get Brando’s casting approved. Evans is obliged to meet with Brando when Bluhdorn accepts the decision.

As filming begins, Ruddy meets with Joe Colombo to explore a solution to Frank Sinatra’s opposition to the film. Ruddy offers to lessen the emphasis on Johnny Fontaine, a figure Sinatra believes is based on him. Colombo threatens the owner of the house Coppola intends to shoot the film after learning that the owner has backed out of the deal. Finally, Ruddy must persuade Evans to cast Pacino in the film to get the project off the ground.

Even before finalizing the script for the film, Francis Ford Coppola insists on casting a relatively unknown Al Pacino as Michael Corleone. However, the studio chief Robert Evans is opposed to Al Pacino appearing in the picture. He declines to see Pacino’s auction tapes and fiercely rejects Ruddy’s claims. Instead, he suggests Ruddy and a slew of other performers for the part. On the other hand, Coppola thinks that Brando and Pacino are fundamental to his vision. As a result, Ruddy is obliged to work around Evans to cast the two actors.

While Ruddy persuades Evans to cast Brando, the studio chief tells the young producer not to do so again. Evans’ hesitation in casting Pacino forces Ruddy to consult Charles Bluhdorn in the decision. He seeks Bluhdorn’s approval, causing Evans to become enraged with Ruddy. Evans tries to persuade Ruddy to star James Caan as Sonny Corleone. Ruddy accepts since he doesn’t want to aggravate the studio head further. However, his connection with Evans suffers permanent harm due to this.

Furthermore, Francis Ford Coppola has doubts about his capacity to execute his vision for the film. Ruddy further complicates matters by insisting on casting Pacino. The biggest surprise comes in the episode’s last seconds for the producer. Ruddy and recruitment director Andrea Eastman speak with Al Pacino in a pub to inform him that he has been cast in ‘The Godfather.’

However, Pacino politely declines the position, citing a contract he already has signed to star in a romantic comedy. Ruddy’s efforts to persuade the actor are futile, as Pacino leaves determined to respect his contract. The episode concludes with a melancholy Ruddy thinking about his efforts to have the picture created. We wrap up our recap of The Offer with this intel here at Otakukart.
