I didn’t know how else to write this headline, but I don”t want to shame every struggling actor who screws up. Consider this more of an unfortunately timed Where Are They Now. Anyway, Steven Bauer (born Steven Ernest Echevarria), one the only actual Cubans in Scarface, got arrested Monday night for a DUI. So I suppose the answer to “where are they now” is “in jail!”
His arrest report shows the 52-year-old Bauer was stopped in Sweetwater, Florida for an improper left turn late Monday night. He was given a warning, but the officer ran his driver’s license and found an open 12-year-old warrant.
Bauer played Manny Ribera in the 1983 movie “Scarface” starring Al Pacino. Bauer also starred on the bilingual PBS show “Qué Pasa, USA.” He played the teenage son of a Cuban exile family in Miami from 1977 to 1979. He was booked into the Miami-Dade County Jail early Tuesday morning. It was not immediately known if he has an attorney. [AP]
Eef I didn’ know better, mang? I say dat cop, she some kinda lesbian.
On a serious note, Bauer’s delivery in the “Beetch. Lesbian.” scene from Scarface is one of my all-time favorite line reads, and easily the most memorable part of that entire movie. Also, I imagine being an actor from Scarface in jail is like being the Red Sox centerfielder in a bar next to Fenway.
She would’ve banged him in real life, Manny was slick as f*ck.
