Al Pacino and Rest of 'Scarface' Cast Almost 40 Years after the Iconic Movie Premiered

Al Pacino and Michelle Pfeiffer rose to stardom with the movie "Scarface" in 1983. Forty years after the film premiered, the pair, as well as the whole cast, continued to enjoy success.

Directed by Brian De Palma, the movie starred Pacino as Tony Montana, according to IMDb. Pfeiffer played the role of Elvira.

Tony Montana is a Cuban immigrant who becomes a drug kingpin in the 1980s Miami. The film was a box-office hit, raking in $126.5 million, as reported by the Hollywood Reporter.

AL PACINO

After the movie, Pacino took on more roles as a gangster. He played a gangster in 1993's "Carlito's Way" and 1997's "Donnie Brasco."

For his excellent acting, Pacino received an Oscar, an Emmy, and a Tony Award. This is a feat achieved only by a few actors.

His latest win was a Golden Globe for best actor in a musical or comedy, for his performance in 2015's "Danny Collins." He portrayed an aging rock star in the show.

Like Pacino, Pfeiffer also garnered accolades for her movies after "Scarface." She earned Oscar nominations for her roles in 1988's "Dangerous Liaisons," 1990's "The Fabulous Baker Boys," and 1992's "Love Field."

Martin Bregman, the producer of "Scarface," saw the original 1932 movie on late-night TV, as reported by Mental Floss. He then decided to do a remake.

One little-known fact about the movie's casting is that director Brian de Palma hesitated to get Pfeiffer on board. At the time, she was known for the commercially unsuccessful film, "Grease 2."

Other actresses eyed to play Elvira were Glenn Close, Geena Davis, and Carrie Fisher. Bregman, however, invited Pfeiffer to audition. Another notable actor from "Scarface" was Geno Silva, who starred as "The Skull." He passed away on May 9, 2020, at the age of 72.
