Meanwhile, in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Chris Pratt revealed that one of his first attempts at Mario’s voice got rejected by the film’s directors, Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic, because it far too resembled Tony Soprano, the anti-hero mob boss played by James Gandolfini in HBO’s The Sopranos.
