My guest for this week's A Winner Is You! is CollegeHumor writer Patrick Cassels. Some of Patrick's most popular articles have been about Mario and getting NES games to work.
TALKING POINT: Casting call! How would you cast a newer, bigger budget, Mortal Kombat movie?
Jeff: I'm thinking all CGI animals. Sub-Zero's a ninja polar bear, Scorpion is a scorpion, etc.Patrick: I would cast Wilson from Home Improvement as Scorpion or Sub-ZeroJeff: Heidely ho Raiden-rino!Patrick: I think Clive Owen might make a good Kano.Jeff: Plus he's already half-cyborg. What about comic relief? Who is Johnny Cage? For my quarters, nobody plays a movie star like Entourage's Adrian Grenier. If he can do a split, he's got the job. I'd also like Johnny Drama to play Stryker.Patrick: One thing that disappointed me in the MK movie was the absence of the Pit.Jeff: Maybe Louie Anderson could play The Pit! Am I right?Patrick: I'll tell you who I wouldn't want for the role of Sonya Blade – Michelle Rodriguez. If I see her fatigues one more time
Jeff: They should get the guys who played the characters in the original games. Those are real people in there, and them seem like they're pretty good actors. Whenever Johnny Cage hit Raiden in the nuts, I could always feel his pain.Patrick: Quan Chi from MK4 should be played by one of the two members of WWF's Legion of Doom – but only because they both wear spiked shoulder pads.Jeff: It'll have to be Hawk. I've got Animal pegged as Shao Kahn.
