Mario Van Peebles
Growing up as a queer child in Mississippi, I got my Nintendo in 1985, and I’ve been lost in this world ever since. When I was scared because my church said people like me were going to burn in hell, ‘Final Fantasy,’ ‘Dragon Warrior’ and ‘Super Mario’ offered a lifeboat.

My wife, she is so good. She was a famous singer – had a show in Carnegie Hall, did a big city tour for RCA. Then she made the mistake of marrying me. The next year, another tour, but the third year, she had Mario and said, ‘Either I’m a mother or a singer.’

Rachael Ray

Nintendo has an enviable position of having the best franchises in this industry in terms of ‘Mario’ and ‘Zelda’ and ‘Metroid’ and ‘Donkey Kong’ and all of those great franchises. Together, those are a library that any developer would kill for.

Lidia Bastianich, sorry, but kind of boring. I mean, I love Lidia, but you can fall asleep watching her. And Mario Batali? I love Mario to death… but he’s not romantic or sensual. Those are the things I bring to the table.

There are only a couple characters and people in the world where, in history, where you can go anywhere in the world and say that character or person, that name, that song, and everyone knows what it is. Mickey Mouse is one, Disney, in general. In terms of gaming, Super Mario, he’s everywhere.

There are two metaphors for Mario the person and not Mario the footballer. I think I am a man, but I don’t believe I need to say it. But I could also be Peter Pan because I do things my own way and I am free. So, yes, maybe I should say that I am Peter Pan – although I am much more of a man.

If there is a person behaving more destructively in popular culture than Mario Lavandeira, I cannot think of one.

Andrew Breitbart
That ‘Super Mario’ movie from the 1990s… left a really bad taste in the mouth of our developers.
Reggie Fils-Aime
I didn’t invent the fear of sharks; it’s as old as mankind, and that – to take that responsibility would mean that Mario Puzo should take the blame for the Mafia.
Peter Benchley
What is important for me is that the people who know me for real know Mario how he really is. People who don’t know me, they read newspapers and they watch TV. TV is made to give a lot of opinions… so I can’t show the real Mario to everybody.

America Ferrera
We believe that either our own teams or teams that we direct are best capable of creating ‘Mario’ games that will live up to the franchise. The same is true for ‘Metroid’ and ‘Zelda’ and all those wonderful properties. For us, we want to control those characters as a key corporate equity.
Reggie Fils-Aime

Caeleb Dressel
At one moment, I thought that if I didn’t do a picture in a certain way, then it wasn’t a ‘Mario Testino Picture.’ And I’ve realized that Mario Testino is everything, Mario Testino is whatever he feels like being, because it always ends up looking like me, whatever I do.

Into the Breach’ is a wonderful strategy game where you play that you are trying to stop an alien invasion.

I love Mario Kart.

Lee Pace
I don’t know about Mario Balotelli saying, ‘Why always me?’ – England should be saying as a nation, ‘Why always us?’ You can go back to 1970, when Gordon Banks got food poisoning and we lost to West Germany. Then there was 1986 and Maradona’s hand. And last time, Frank Lampard not getting his goal against the Germans.
Glenn Hoddle
Mario Balotelli is undoubtedly the greatest talent of Italian football.
