Who should play the new Scarface?
In 1932, Paul Muni played an Al Capone-esque Italian-American gangster terrorizing prohibition-era Chicago. In 1983, Al Pacino hammed it up as a Cuban immigrant mobster terrorizing coke-addled Miami. Now, with Universal considering another version of the American-dream-gone-astray tale, HitFix takes a look at a few of the contenders to play a 21st Century version of the gun-toting gangster. Since details are scarce about the character, we're going into this without any specific national background in mind, except for the fact that wherever life is cheapest, that's where Scarface has to come from.
