its so funny how they decided to announce the mario cast during a nintendo direct. like, the only people watching those are nintendo fans, which is exactly the opposite of who they were thinking about when casting those people
like they just went and decided to break the news first to the people who would be the least likely to be supportive of it. nintendo really knows how to celebrate out of touch thursday

They didn't write the Mario movie and say "you know who would be perfect to play Mario? Chris Pratt!" No, they picked Chris Pratt for marketability and name recognition and wrote a new Mario around him. I guarantee you this version of Mario will sound and act identical to every other Chris Pratt character; they all have the exact same sense of humor, the same dopey confidence, they all feel like they were written by the same person for the same purpose. You don't cast Chris Pratt, you typecast him. He's not playing Mario, he's playing himself in red overalls.
