For the limited series The Offer, Chambers will portray Marlon Brando, based on producer Al Ruddy’s experience creating Francis Ford Coppola’s 1972 masterpiece The Godfather. The film, featuring Brando as crime leader Vito Corleone, was nominated for 11 Oscars and won three, including Brando for Best Actor. He turned down the honour.

When asked about his decision, Chambers said, “There’s no good moment to say goodbye to a programme and role that’s defined so much of my life for the previous 15 years.” The goal of diversifying my performing jobs and career options has been in the works for quite some time now. And, as I approach 50 and am blessed with a fantastic, supporting wife and five wonderful children, now is the time to make that decision.”
