As Toad actor Keegan-Michael Key confirms the mushroom man will perform a bit of singing, the Super Mario Bros. movie might be a bit of a musical.
While it''s not clear if the Mario Bros. film will feature a lot of musicals, Giant Bomb''s Jeff Grubb suggested earlier this year that it might have a few musical numbers in it, which is a bit more accurate today. Key was asked if Toad, the perfect creature known as, will perform any singing, to which the actor said "he does."
"I got to improvise a song in Super Mario Bros., which was a massive success," Key continued to explain. "That was just a stick of fun, that whole thing." The actor also revealed how he "was experimenting on the voice with my partner, and trying to reach the voice through the internal journey of the character. "We then sprinkled some things in, we moved it around."
Should Toad perform any kind of singing, dowing to the whole shrill voice that might likely kill a man with its sharpness? Probably not, but Key has clearly not stopped, so you should appreciate the gift we''re given here.
Jack Black, who is taking on the difficult task of voicing Bowser, said at New York Comic Con that he "did a little bit of rocking" and that he thinks "you''ll be surprised to see that Bowser has a musical side" (via IGN).
While Martinet has spoken out about the titular plumber himself, Tara Strong said on Twitter that "it should be Charles [Martinet]," but everyone''s less generous of the Chrises Chris Pratt is taking the reins for the film, a topic of concern for many.
