Ben Schwartz Set To Voice Sonic The Hedgehog In Upcoming Movie

Ben Schwartz is making a dash for Paramount Pictures' Sonic the Hedgehog. That vow is proving to be good as gold, as Schwartz has just being cast as the bluest '90s cartoon character of them all: Sonic the Hedgehog. Standard Sonic stuff then.

Sonic the Hedgehog is in production, and will also star James Marsden and Tika Sumpter. He'll be filling in for Roger Craig Smith, who usually voices the character in various games, as well as Wreck-it Ralph. According to early reports, the film will be a live-action hybrid, focusing on Sonic's time as "a juvenile delinquent on the adventures in a pretty straight rural environment with a local policeman". Have you seen any of Schwartz's work?

While Carrey's past form in playing outrageous characters (like The Grinch, for instance) is well-documented, Schwartz has prior experience in voice-acting, now lending his larynx to Dewey Duck in the rebooted Duck Tales series on the Disney Channel and confirmed as Leonardo in the Nickelodeon's "Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles".

Back in July we learned the actor would be playing Sonic's arch nemesis Dr. Eggman, aka Dr. Robotnik, and while appearing at a Television Critics Association press tour panel for his Showtime series Kidding (which looks absolutely fantastic) he was asked about his role in Sonic the Hedgehog, to which Carrey confirmed his role would be live-action. Meanwhile, the film will be produced by Deadpool director Tim Miller, along with Toby Ascher and Neal H. Moritz. The film will dash into theaters on November 15, 2019. Fowler also co-directed the 2005 Oscar-nominated animated short "Gopher Broke".
