Known for his roles in films such as Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Brazil and the infamous Super Mario Bros movie, beloved British actor Bob Hoskins passed away yesterday at the age of 71.
Super Mario Bros., the 1993 film, paved the way video game movies for all time to come. Namely, that everyone would expect them to be terrible. It opened 20 years ago on Tuesday, and John Leguizamo, who starred as Luigi, had the grace and good humor to record this message for a Super Mario Bros. film fansite.
From a Q&A with the actor published in today's Guardian.
With classic comedies like Caddyshack, Groundhog Day and Analyze This, Harold Ramis has an impressive film director resume — which was almost tarnished by that disastrous Super Mario Bros. flick.
