“I’m playing Luigi. “Actually, I was just recording it this morning and I want to tell you everything,” he said, “but it ‘s top secret with these things.”
“It is true that?” Kimmel asked.
“Absolutely,” Day told him. “This is a serious thing! You know, these are Nintendo cartoons! “
Asked if he had read the entire script, Day revealed: “I know nothing. I know nothing. I show up and they tell me, ‘You say this and you say that’, and everything is very funny and nice, and then I go out and there are two guys in overalls with hammers who are like, ‘Nobody says anything about that, Charlie. I swear to God that we will put your knees on you, we will break your neck “.

Pressed about how the actor playing Luigi, such a central character in the franchise, could be left in the dark about the plot of the film, Day joked: “You know, Mario probably knows. “They say nothing to Luigi.”
Mario will have the voice in the film by Chris Pratt, but Day explained that they do not actually record together.
“They divorced you!” Kimmel remarked, to which the actor said: “Maybe they just do not trust me around Pratt, I do not know.”
