Vivendi Games’ (“VG”) Sierra Entertainment has
unveiled part of the A-list talent that will help bring
drug-lord Tony Montana’s criminal empire to life in
the upcoming video game Scarface: The
World Is Yours. Attracting an
unprecedented array of Hollywood’s brightest film and
television stars as well as returning cast members
from the 1983 classic film, the hotly-anticipated
game will plunge players deep into the seedy
underbelly of 1980s Miami as they rebuild Tony
Montana’s empire and seek vengeance on his
enemies. Further announcements about additional

The cast includes stars from the original film including
Robert Loggia (Jagged Edge), who played
Frank Lopez, Steven Bauer (Traffic), who
starred as Manny Ribera, and Al Israel (Dangerous
Minds), who appeared as Hector the Toad. Al
Pacino lends his likeness to the lead role in the game
and hand-picked the voice-over actor playing Tony
Montana. In addition, key lines from Mr. Pacino’s
performance in the original film appear in the game.

Scarface: The World Is Yours has
also attracted a host of stars new to the Scarface
franchise who have lent their voices to characters
throughout the game, creating a cast list and
performance level that is unparalleled in video
games.
