Pedro Pascal is the live-action Mario we always needed.
Pedro Pascal, star of The Mandalorian and The Last of Us, was the latest actor to host Saturday Night Live. In the latest SNL sketch, Pascal plays the iconic Super Mario in a post-apocopate skit. Spoofing the success of the HBO Max series The Last of Us, the Super Mario video game was turned into a gritty series. The “trailer” follows a group of people as they try to help a princess get to Rainbow Road. Sounds familiar? The skit features A dark version of the Mushroom Kingdom that looks cool. Kenan Thompson plays Bowser, Luigi is played by Mikey Day, Bowen Yang plays Yoshi, and Chloe Fineman plays Princess Peach. Watch the skit below!
