Never have I been more jealous in this job before – Bulent, one of my colleagues who works on our Nintendo blog, WiiWii, today met with Charles Martinet, who provides the voice for Mario, in town for today’s launch of Super Mario Galaxy.
Take a look at the above video for his amazing impersonations, the hilarious story behind him winning the role of Mario, how he based his voice on a character from Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew, and to see just how similar he looks to Boris Johnson. I. Am. Green. With. ENVY.
