Pedro Pascal is on the crest of the wave these days following the global success of the TV series The Last Of Us, visible on Sky and NOW. Inspired by the video game of the same name, the HBO series tells the apocalyptic adventure of Joel, a gruff but honest man, and the young Ellie, a fourteen-year-old girl who knows how to get by on her own and must get out of the forced quarantine area. To the Saturday Night Live the Chilean actor enjoyed playing a parody that has merged his HBO adventure with Super Mario.

Apocalyptic Super Mario

What would he do Super Mario in a post apocalyptic world? Pedro Pascal tried to tell it with a sketch in which he himself plays the beloved Nintendo plumber with a moustache, immersed in a post-apocalyptic setting in The Last of Us. “Karting here is not a game. If we’re going to make it, we’re going to need all the help we can get,” Pascal tells the supposed Princess Peach. Yoshi and Toad also appear who come out as bisexuals and then Bowser. This parody probably also served to promote Super Mario Bros – The Movie, arriving in April 2023 at the cinema.

Pedro Pascal’s next projects

We will soon find Pascal under the mask of Mando in the third season of The Mandalorian arriving in March on Disney+ (also visible on Sky Glass, Sky Q and via the app on the Now Smart Stick). A golden age for the leading actor of many successful products. In the many public appearances or interactions on social networks he has often shown himself self-deprecating and funnyand it’s much in demand between cinema and TV series. Among his next projects will be in the next film by Pedro Almodovar, Strange Way of Lifein the thriller My Dentist’s Murder Trial alongside David Harbour, in Freaky Tales, Tropic with Willem Dafoe e The Uninvited.
