Today, the notion of casting The Godfather differently verges on heresy, but a list of actors hand-written by director Francis Ford Coppola himself offers a look at a parallel-dimension version of the mafia classic.

Dustin Hoffman or Martin Sheen as Michael Corleone instead of Al Pacino?
Ben Gazzara or John Saxon as Sonny instead of James Caan? ("Jimmy," per Coppola's notes.)
