The Super Mario Bros. Movie might be a bit of a musical, as Toad actor Keegan-Michael Key confirms that the mushroom man will perform a bit of singing.
Although it isn''t clear if the Mario Bros. film will feature a complete musical, Giant Bomb''s Jeff Grubb said earlier this year that it might have a few musical numbers in it, which is a bit more accurate now. Key was asked if the perfect creature known as Toad would perform any singing, to which the actor said "he does."
"I got to improvise a song in Super Mario Bros., which was a great experience," Key continued to explain. "That was just a stick of fun, that whole thing," the actor said, adding that he "was doing my best to do it with my partner and trying to enlighten the voice through the inner journey of the character. "We went there with the directors, then we did it."
Should Toad perform any sort of singing, assuming the whole shrill voice that might probably kill a man with its sharpness? Yes, it''s likely, but Key hasn''t stopped, so you can be sure we''re given the gift.
Jack Black, who is contemplating the difficult task of voicing Bowser, spoke at New York Comic Con about his "a little bit of rocking" and said, "You''ll be surprised to see that Bowser has a musical side" (via IGN).
Although Martinet has used the actor for decades, everyone''s least dislike of Chris Pratt is taking the lead in the Mario Bros. film, which is a source of concern for many.
