Don Cheadle Returns as Captain Planet (Video)

Don Cheadle as Captain Planet

Don Cheadle returns as the maniacal Captain Planet in Funny or Die’s spoof of the original 1990s cartoon hero. In the new episodes, the Captain terrorizes an Environmental Protection Agency in an effort to stop pollution and keep the planet green. The Captain’s reputation also takes a hit in the latest episode as people start to question if his power has gone to his head. It ain’t easy being green.

This is obviously supposed to be a joke, but Cheadle is totally frightening as Captain Planet. Someone should seriously think about casting him as a villain in a real project.
