Voice-acting genius Charles Martinet
is a classically trained actor who appeared in "The Dead Pool
" and "Matlock
" before landing his best-known role as the voice of Mario in "Super Mario 64." Nintendo quickly realized the range of Martinet's talent and signed him up to voice Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, Toadsworth, Baby Mario and Baby Luigi.
Asylum's Resident Genius Ryan McKee caught up with Martinet at Nintendo World
in New York City for the release of "Super Mario Galaxy 2
." Completely in his nerd element, McKee deftly questioned Martinet about Method-acting Mario, Italian-voice stereotypes and what McKee's voice would sound like in a video game.
