So now that I've thought of it there's a couple of castings that I feel were cast for the wrong character. Jack Black feels like he should be Mario instead of Bowser, Kevin Michael Richardson feels like he should be Bowser instead of Kamek and Charlie Day should have been Toad instead of Luigi. They're the three that kinda stand out to me

I fully admit I burst out laughing at the idea of Charlie Day as Luigi, and I mean that in a good way. He'll finally get to find out what this place's spaghetti policy is.
I did also wonder for a second if Charlie made more sense as Toad, but I think they know what they're doing with Key being on that.
That said, I'm always partial to the brothers sounding like Brooklyn transplants; we obviously don't know what the plot is for this yet, but having Mario and Luigi start as two guys making a living in New York City and getting sent to the Mushroom Kingdom allows for a much simpler and more relatable fish out of water story. Obviously the games don't deal with that and I understand why that backstory can be seen as kind of limiting and not as relatable for non-Americans, but hey, it's what I grew up with, can't help myself.
