EDITOR'S OPINIONAh yes Luigi the Ed McMahon to Mario's Johnny Carson, namely THE second banana to one of Video Game's most iconic heroes.
Unlike his dear "little big brother" Luigi's debut in North American animation was the Super Mario Bros Super Show portrayed by Danny Wells. (In which his performance alike Lou Albano is pretty classic.) However while its fairly easy to tell the difference between Lou Albano and Walker Boone for Mario, not so much for Danny Wells and Tony Rosato and I got to give it to Tony for that. (Well Tony Rosato is from Italy so that would explain on how he can do the accent rather well.)
There is Marc Graue for the infamous Hotel Mario, which I actually didn't think was that bad. (Though it is strange to hear Luigi with a higher voice than Mario. Luigi's voice was never all that low but his voice is usually lower than Marios.)
And of course Charles Martinet as Luigi, whom pretty much just did a more nasal version of his Mario voice. (And while I do prefer his Mario voice this works as well.)
While I don't dislike any of the Luigi voices the first two are better than the latter two IMO.
(Luigi was voiced by Julien Bardakoff in the International/Japanese version of Mario Kart 64 and was voiced by an Unknown VA in Mario is Missing. Both of these guys did seem to try to do the accent for Luigi but the results do kind of come off a bit awkward and off. So in other words they are average at best and tie with Marc Graue for a decent at best 3rd place.)
