Former "Scarface" Stars Al Pacino and Angel Salazar Meet at The Mirage in Las Vegas
Saturday night, Aug 16, was a very special evening for two men who first worked together in the historic movie, “Scarface,” in 1983, and 10 years later (1993) appeared in the Golden Globe nominated film, “Carlito’s Way,” as Hollywood legend Al Pacino (The Godfather), and comedian Angel Salazar, came together in Las Vegas. 

Pacino was in the middle of his one man show at The Mirage, in the packed Terry Fator Theater, and Salazar, who portrayed, Walberto in Carlito’s Way, was sitting in the audience with some friends. During the Q & A from the audience, Comedian/Actor Salazar took to the microphone and said, “Mr. Pacino, ‘Sheck it out!’…. It’s Chi-Chi, your little side kick from Scarface!”

A big smile came across Pacino’s face as he peered out into the audience. “Who is that? Chi Chi?! The audience immediately recognized Salazar as one of the co-stars from the cult movie, “Scarface,” and erupted into applause. Angel responded, “I just wanted to tell you man, I GOT THE YEYO! Then Angel pulled out a huge plastic bag filled with white powder. The crowd went nuts when he said that quotable famous line from the hit movie!

Angel jumped up onstage with Al and moderator John Katsilometes. Al immediately gave Angel a big hug while the audience applauded, and called out his character’s name, “Chi Chi get the Yeyo!” Angel took this moment to plug his upcoming Vegas engagement. “Hey everybody, ‘sheck it out!’ On Monday I open at the Laugh Factory at the Tropicana hotel!” The audience applauded as he jumped back down into the crowd.

After the show Angel posed for at least 50 photos with Scarface fans before going backstage to see Al. Al & Angel posed for some photos back in the green room.

Angel not only appeared in the cult classic Scarface, he also appeared opposite Pacino in his other hit gangster classic, “Carlito’s Way.”
