New York (ANI): American actress Glenn Close, who had been considered for the role of a hooker, was found ?not slutty enough for the part, reveals a new book. Actor Al Pacino, who played the part of Cuban coke kingpin Tony Montana in Scarface, had originally wanted Close to play his sex-bomb gal pal Elvira.
The role had later been given to actress Michelle Pfeiffer revealed Ken Tucker in his new book 'Scarface Nation'. Producer Martin Bregman told Tucker that Close was nowhere near to being the character.
"I said to Al, Elvira has to be half a hooker. Glenn Close is many things, but she is not half a hooker," the New York Post quoted Bregman as having told Tucker.
