And it seems like another door has just opened up for him.

Jack Black wants Pedro Pascal to join the Mario series

In a recent interview with Gamespot, Black talked about the return of Bowser in future Mario movies. He said, “You know, I did a few Kung Fu Panda movies, and it was a different villain every movie. They may do the same thing.”

“You know, what if there is a more powerful, more evil villain? Then I may need to be turned to help Mario and the rest to defend our universe against some other unseen force of evil. Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Wario. Pedro Pascal is Wario.”
