The Scarface Blu-Ray release party was the place to be for any fan of the cult classic film [check out The Urban Daily’s giveaway here]. In celebration of the release the cast of the film, –including Steven Bauer, F. Murray Abraham, Robert Loggia(whose name I can’t hear without thinking of Family Guy now), Producer Martin Bregman, and Tony Montana himself Al Pacino–gathered at the Belasco Theatre in Los Angeles.
The Tony Montana plastered red carpet featured an array of other celebrities like “True Blood’s” Joe Manganiello, Ludacris (who performed what seemed like every song he’s ever made after the Q&A), Hemky Madera of Weed’s, Gene Simmons and his ENTIRE family, Kendra Wilkinson and her husband(and free agent?) Hank Baskett, and for some reason Vienna Girardi from “The Bachelor”?
The most notable moment of the evening (and what seemed to be thematic among the cast) was crediting rappers and the rap community with the longevity and continued mainstream success of Scarface. During the Q&A Al referenced the 2003 documentary “Scarface: Origins of a Hip Hop Classic” saying, “The hip hop people and the rappers got together and they made a video and they talked about the movie. I don’t think anybody ever talked about it as articulately and clearly. I understood it better having heard them talk about it…I mean they really get it and they understand it and that’s a great thing. They’ve been very supportive all these years and I think that’s helped us tremendously”
