"Mercy" is a new romantic drama that stars Scott Caan, who also wrote and produced it. He plays a novelist and swaggering Lothario who finally ditches his womanizing ways for the right woman — until she's gone. His father, James Caan, appears in the film as his character's father, a professor burned out on love. James, 70, and Scott, 33, recently discussed their on-screen and off-screen relationship over lunch at the Chateau Marmont. Is this the first time you've worked together?

Boy meets girl. Girl meets boy's mom. Trouble ensues. This familiar love-hate triangle shapes “No Way Around but Through,” Scott Caan's linguistically contorted dark comedy now at the Falcon Theatre. A possible pregnancy means time for 30ish Jacob (Caan) and Holly (Robyn Cohen) to have, you know, The Talk. Too bad Holly's invisible. As Jacob puts it: “Every time a woman speaks, I see my mother.” Tricky stuff when a man-child's maternal figure is Lulu (Melanie Griffith), a Valley Medea in 5-inch heels.

Scott Caan popped up on local TV news last week when he attended the premiere of his new movie, "American Outlaws," which over the weekend grossed about $4.8 million. The next night, 24-year-old Caan took the stage of a small theater in North Hollywood to perform in a play he'd written called "Almost Love." Box-office gross: $24. "And that's split four ways," Caan says, chuckling. "You tell me which one makes me more excited," he challenges. Doing theater? "Absolutely," he says.

During the tense and sweaty "give me my brother or I'll- kill your father" terrorist negotiations that open CBS' new " Hawaii Five-O," a viewer might find herself surprisingly distracted. Not by any allegiance to the original — though one of TV's longest-running shows, "Hawaii Five-O" has been reduced in cultural memory to its classic opening music and the catchphrase "Book 'em, Danno," both of which are present and accounted for — but by the show's lead. And not for the reason CBS would hope.

Being the offspring of an actor as legendary as James Caan, it was perhaps inevitable that once Scott Caan started working in Hollywood he would end up someday sharing the screen with his father. Yet apart from a few scenes in 1995's forgettable "A Boy Called Hate," they have never had a meaningful appearance in a film together. That will come to an end when "Mercy" has its world premiere Saturday as part of the CineVegas Film Festival in Las Vegas.

Since he vividly and viscerally brought to life the hot-tempered Sonny Corleone in Francis Ford Coppola's 1972 Oscar-winning classic "The Godfather," James Caan has always been thought of as being an authentic tough guy. In real life, he often came across as a toughie with his no-nonsense New York swagger and streetwise attitude. But appearances can be deceiving. Though one can't describe the 71-year-old Caan as a teddy bear, he's clearly mellowed over the years. Caan has been stressing over his tough guy image of late — he's amazed that Hollywood is still "pushing this tough guy stuff.

Melanie Griffith returns to the spotlight as a young man's dysfunctional mother in "No Way Around but Through," a new play written by and starring Scott Caan, which runs through July 8 at the Falcon Theatre in Burbank. You play a very different kind of role from the sweet, girlish characters you're famous for. Your character is jaded, steely, a bit of a monster. I don't know if she's really that much of a monster. I think she's a monster in his [her son's ] mind. You know, kids that don't want to be doing what they're supposed to do, like grow up. But yeah, I guess she's a monster in a way, but I've been through stuff like that with my kids.
