E3 06: More stars doing lines for Scarface
Vivendi announces second round of big-time voice talent signed to appear in The World is Yours.
Vivendi Games' upcoming adaptation of Brian De Palma's 1983 film Scarface won't feature new voice work from the film's star, Al Pacino. But while gamers will have to settle for Pacino's likeness and a few canned lines from the original film, it appears a significant portion of the rest of the film industry will be contributing voice work for the game.
The latest roster from Vivendi includes original Scarface cast member Al Isreal, who played Hector the Toad, rapper/actor Ice T (Leprechaun in the Hood, Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo), Oliver Platt (Bulworth, Ready to Rumble), Elliott Gould (M.A.S.H., Ocean's Eleven), Anthony Anderson (King's Ransom, Exit Wounds), Michael Rooker (Slither, Mallrats), Jason Mewes (Mallrats, My Big Fat Independent Movie), Tommy Chong (Half-Baked, the Cheech and Chong films), Richard Roundtree (Shaft, Corky Romano), Tiny Lister (Friday, former WWF wrestler Zeus), Bai Ling (Red Corner, Lords of Dogtown), Bam Margera (Haggard: The Movie, Viva La Bam), Wilmer Valderrama (That 70s Show, the upcoming remake of CHiPs), Daniel Dae Kim (Crash, Lost), Willa Holland (The O.C.), Roma Maffia (Nip/Tuck), Robert LaSardo (Nip/Tuck), Brenda Strong (Desperate Housewives), Ricky Gervais (The Office), Rick Yune (Die Another Day), Kevin Dillon (Entourage), Jerry Ferrara (Entourage), Cree Summer (Drawn Together), rapper N.O.R.E., rocker Tommy Lee, Cypress Hill's B. Real and Sen Dog, and NASCAR racer Dale Earnhardt, Jr.
Previously announced cast members include original Scarface actors Steven Bauer (real name: Esteban Echevarria) and Robert Loggia, as well as James Woods (who was also in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and both PlayStation 2 Kingdom Hearts games), Jay Mohr (from TV's Action), Cheech Marin (Masked and Anonymous, the Cheech and Chong films), Michael York (Logan's Run, Austin Powers), Michael Rappaport (Grand Theft Auto III, TV's The War at Home), Miguel Sandoval (Blow), and Robert Davi (Licence to Kill).
Scarface: The World is Yours is set to release on the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PC, with the already announced Xbox 360 version presumably to follow.
