Scarface: The World Is Yours is a game that a lot of gamers are starting to drool over. With over two-decades having passed since the iconic film made its debut, fans of the movie have been waiting for a way to get into Tony Montana's world for a long time.

Probably the most notable aspect of the new game is not necessarily the graphics, but the voice talent that has signed on with Scarface. Not only does the game have quite a few members of the original cast, but a whole slew of character actors and actresses have joined the ranks of the Scarface cast.

Reprising their roles from the 1983 film are Robert Loggia (Frank Lopez), Steven Bauer (Manny Ribera), Al Israel (Hector the Toad) and even though Al Pacino isn't voicing Tony Montana, he is lending his likeness and has hand picked the voice-actor that will replace him.

As for the other voice talents, here is just a sample...

  • James Woods (Casino)
  • Robert Davi (Die Hard)
  • Michael Rapaport (Beautiful Girls, The War at Home)
  • Actor/rapper Ice T (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit)
  • Oliver Platt (The Ice Harvest)
  • Jay Mohr (Jerry Maguire)
  • Miguel Sandoval (Jurassic Park, Medium)
  • Daniel Dae Kim (Lost)
  • Willa Holland (The O.C. )
  • Roma Maffia (Nip/Tuck)
  • Robert LaSardo (Nip/Tuck)
  • Brenda Strong (Desperate Housewives)
  • NASCAR champion Dale Earnhardt, Jr.
  • Cheech Marin (From Dusk ‘Til Dawn)
  • Ricky Gervais (The Office)
  • Michael York (Austin Powers films)
  • Michael Rooker (Slither)
  • Tommy Chong (Cheech & Chong movies)
  • Jason Mewes (Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back)
  • Anthony Anderson (Hustle & Flow)
  • Rick Yune (Die Another Day)
  • Wilmer Valderrama (That 70s Show)
  • Kevin Dillon and Jerry Ferrara (Entourage)
  • Richard Roundtree (Shaft)
  • Tiny Lister (Next Friday)
  • Bai Ling (Lords of Dogtown)
  • Bam Margera (Viva La Bam)
  • Cree Summer (Drawn Together)
  • Rapper N.O.R.E.
  • Tommy Lee
  • B. Real and Sen Dog (Cypress Hill)
  • Elliott Gould (Ocean’s Eleven & Twelve)
Needless to say, this is probably the largest selection of TV and Movie stars to contribute to a video game.

Scarface: The World Is Yours will come out for the Xbox, PS2 and PC this Fall.
