“So when I was a kid, I lived in Lake Stevens, Washington and there was this coin-operate laundromat near my house and they had Super Mario Bros, the original arcade game,” Chris said in a video shared on Instagram.

“Oh I loved that game. I never had a quarter it felt like. I used to steal them from the wishing well,” Chris said with a laugh. “That’s wild. It just dawned on me right now. The quarter I stole out of the wishing well to play Super Mario Bros is a dream come true that I get to voice Mario.”

“But I clearly stole someone else’s wish,” Chris realized. “So just waiting for that row of karma dominoes to come crashing down on me, but hey, as it is right now, it’s a me. I’m Mario.”

Chris concluded his message by saying, “I’m really excited to announce I’m going to be the voice of a video game character I played when I was a kid. Dreams come true.”

Super Mario Bros is set to hit theaters on December 21, 2022. See who else will be voicing characters in the movie!
