Indeed, one of the actors, Jack Black, who will play Bowser in the video game adaptation, dressed up as his character during an interview on The Kelly Clarkson Show. The catch: his co-stars Keegan-Michael Key (Toad), Chris Pratt (Mario), and Charlie Day (Luigi) didn’t do what he did, and he looked a little goofy.
Apparently, this is a “stunt” where Jack Black pretends to be mad at his colleagues for not wearing their disguises. But, even for a publicity stunt, Jack Black managed to entertain. Real man, good Jack.
It should also be noted that Bowser’s costume had to be censored near the actor’s private parts. This is just the beginning of The Super Mario Bros. advertising campaign. The movie, by the time the movie comes out in April, things could be out of control!
