Lesson number one: Don't underestimate the other guy's greed!
~ Frank's business philosophy

Frank Lopez is the secondary antagonist in the 1983 film Scarface.

Frank Lopez is an aging Miami based drug lord (leading the Lopez Cartel), who asks Tony Montana and Manny Ribera to kill a former political aide to Fidel Castro. This establishes a friendship between Lopez and Tony up until the latter secretly negotiates with Alejandro Sosa.

He was portrayed by the late Robert Loggia, who also played Bill Sykes in Oliver and Company.


Tony pays Lopez back the money and cocaine from a botched drug deal. Tony is also introduced to Elvira Hancock, Lopez's mistress who will become the source of tension between them. Tensions rise when Montana makes a deal with Bolivian drug lord Alejandro Sosa without Frank's consent and Suarez is killed by Sosa's men. Lopez is angered, and accuses Montana of stealing the deal.

Montana goes as far as to propose to Elvira. Combined with that, Lopez and Montana have a heated confrontation at the Babylon Club, resulting in two Colombian gunmen being sent in to assassinate Montana. Montana escapes, and confronts him and his corrupt cop henchman Mel Bernstein along with Manny and Chi-Chi.

Once disarmed, the aging drug lord begins pleading for his life and Tony agrees that he won't kill Lopez. He then gives Manny the gun, and Manny kills Lopez with a shot to the chest while Montana finishes off Mel.

During the game, Tony occasionally expresses regret for killing Frank, saying he is sorry, but that Frank was wrong. Robert Loggia also stars in the video game as the narrator.
