Virtual Tony Montana Loves Being A Video Game Mobster

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Al Pacino may be the original mobster, Tony Montana, in the classic film Scarface, but one videogame actor is trying his hand at the role – in the virtual world that is.

Actor Andre Sogliuzzo is the voice of Montana in the new videogame Scarface: The World Is Yours, and says he loved channeling the Cuban mobster during his stint as the character.

Says Sogliuzzo: “ My Tony within was let out – accent and all.”

Sogliuzzo admits he couldn’t stop speaking in the famous Cuban accent around the house, but says it didn’t seem to bother his wife.

He adds, “My wife loved my character. The accent made her laugh. She was proud to say Tony Montana was her husband.”

Sogliuzzo also enjoyed interactions with different virtual women in the video game adding, “Going up to women and hookers in the game, and saying stuff like ‘Hey, you want some ice cream?’ was great.”

He insists, “Tony always treats the ladies like ladies...even when they’re not ladies. He’s a classy guy.”
