Louis DiGiaimo, casting director of 'The Godfather,' dies at 77

Louis DiGiaimo, an Emmy-winning casting director who made his name with "The Godfather" — and whose New York sensibilities flavored a string of successful Hollywood films and TV shows — has died.

DiGiaimo, a son of Italian immigrants who lived all his life in his native New Jersey, died in Oakland in that state Dec. 19. He suffered complications from a stroke in May, said Lee DiGiaimo, his wife of 53 years. He was 77.

He specialized in discovering unknown actors who would inject a jolt of authenticity into character roles.
