New ‘Scarface’ brings in hired gun

Thesp Sogliuzzo provides voice of Pacino character

In Vivendi Games’ new videogame sequel to “Scarface,” the star you see is not the star you hear.

Publisher has focused publicity on its deal to secure the likeness of Al Pacino as Tony Montana, as well as voiceover work from original movie stars Steven Bauer and Robert Loggia (playing new characters, since they didn’t survive the original pic), along with James Woods, Jay Mohr, Bam Margera and Jillian Barberie.

But while the digital Tony Montana looks and sounds just like Pacino, the voice is provided by another actor, Andre Sogliuzzo.

40 year-old thesp has worked on stage and in movies, but has most recently found a profitable niche in vidgames, where he has done voice work on nearly 100 titles.

“It’s pretty grueling work recording 3,000 lines in nine days, since Tony’s voice isn’t easy to maintain,” he says of the process.

“Scarface” is his first “lead” role, though it hasn’t exactly come with the status that usually accompanies playing the main character in a high-profile release.

In the world of digital entertainment, the term “star” is clearly relative.
