    Bob Hoskins played Mario in the movie. Ron Jeremy probably played Mario in porno version if there ever was one.

    Captain Lou Albano was the first to play Mario in live action during the LA segments of the Super Mario Bros Super Show.

    Then Bob Hoskins played him in the movie.

    And, now, according to the imdb, Ron did Super Hornio Brothers in 93 ;)

    And then you have whoever did Mario's cartoon voice for the Mario cartoons on the SMBSS, as well as the later Super Mario Bros 3. (later Captain N & the Adventures of Super Mario Bros 3)and Super Mario World NBC cartoons voiced by Walker Boone (who may have also voiced the SMBSS segments, not sure).

    The modern Mario in games is voiced by Charles Martinet.

    Interesting bit of trivia- during the Donkey Kong cartoon segments of the Saturday Supercade shop in the early 80's, Mario was voiced by Peter "Optimus Prime/Voice of God" Cullen.

    Super Hornio Brothers, I'm gonna have to check that out. See if it's an accurate portrayol, true to the video game.

    All right. Who decided they had to go mention that Mario movie? Incidentally, it lead into a sequel. The Yoshi dino was fully mechanised too, $350k to make I think.

    The problem with the Mario movie is the people who made it never actually even played a Mario game until Nintendo Power brought an SNES and SMW onto the set.

    Ach, I recently saw that movie. It certainly puts a funny perspective on things... Mario and Luigi are psychopaths(laughing all the way as they kill hard-working, barely-earning-enough-for-their-family police officers), the human race basically consists of a bunch of uncaring folks(laughing when a man's life is completely ruined when he is turned into a chimp), and the idea that when Mario, Luigi and Bowser met for the first time, the latter introduced himself as Larry Lizard.

    Come on, at least you weren't expecting something like that when you played the video games.

    Gotta give them props for integrating the Super Scope 6 into the movie's plot, as opposed to the "let's stop while we watch a cool commercial for the Power Glove" in The Wizard ;)


    Now, embrace the horror and pure glorious nostalgia of...

    In response to one of the comments above about Lucas ruining childhood, the Lucas bashing is getting kind of old, The problem is, too many people had too high of an expectations of the prequels. They could never match up to the originals,it's an unfair comparison. Second, the original were torn apart too when they first came out and look at them now. People just don't know how to enjoy movies any more, too judgemental. I love all the movies, hail George Lucas!
