Who would you cast in a modern Live Action Super Mario Bros movie?

So the Escapists own MovieBob has mentioned on a handfull of occasions that he beleives a live action film based on the Super Mario franchise is possible and it is infact his dream job to head such a production. Not too long ago MovieBob called for questions for a special mail-bag episode of The Big Picture. Curious about his "dream project" I asked who he would cast if he got to make it within the next few years. Alas said question was not answered, but it could make for a fun little topic.

Please note this isn't a disscussion on whether I new SMB movie is a good idea or not, I am aware that loads of people loathe the orignal movie (I liked it =P) as well as video game movies in general. This is just a fun topic about a make beleive movie.

So my cast:

Tyler Labine as Mario

James Franco as Luigi

Zooey Deschanel as Pricess Peach

Craig Fergason as the voice of Bowser (Anamatronic/CGI)

Martin Klebba as Toad
image

Jack Black as Wario (Wario Ware style)
image

Kelsey Grammer as the voice of Donkey Kong
image

One of the baby Godzillas from the 1998 American remake as Yoshi

Seeing as that's the cast of Mario Kart 64 that should be enough for now. I tried to get pictures of the actors looking the part. Who do you like? Who do you dislike? But more importantly who would you cast?

PS. If you want me to go into more detail I could... But WOULD I?

... Depends on how slow a day it is.
