Don Cheadle Is Captain Planet: ‘The Power Is Mine, Bitches!’

Oscar nominee Don Cheadle, aka James “Rhodey” Rhodes of Iron Man 2 fame, offers a hilarious yet troubling vision of what that live-action Captain Planet adaptation could look like in this latest video from the folks at Funny or Die. Gillian Jacobs (Community), Efren Ramirez (Napoleon Dynamite) and William Moseley (The Chronicles of Narnia) also lend in a hand in the short, which throws the whole “With great power comes great responsibility” lesson out the window.

    This is the funniest shit I’ve seen in a long, long time. Cheadle is a god amongst men.

    “Captain Planet, mothafucka” is all I can say. And here I thought Don Cheadle as War Machine was awesome already…

    That bit where he’s talking quietly to himself;
    “E… E-everybody’s a tree… I knew I’d do it.”
    Would be the best bit if it weren’t for Ma-ti’s “My heart! It hurts!” XD

    agreed.

    Stupid, actually.  They over did it.  The guy planting the tree should have been left alone.  The dog walker should have been turned into a tree and had her dog tinkle on her.  The only good thing was seeing someone like Cheadle do something as ridiculous as this, but then actors seem to be doing this more with shows like Children’s Hospital and that NTSF whatever (Kate Mulgrew with an eye patch) on Adult Swim.  I admire his career bravery, but other than him, it wasn’t funny.

    Was that Gillain Jacobs from Community as the blonde?
