Ben Schwartz is the new voice of Sonic The Hedgehog

Ben Schwartz is the new voice of Sonic The Hedgehog

Sonic is a snarky but entertaining little piece of shit, a character trope that Schwartz is synonymous with. He will face off against Dr. Robotnik, who will be played by Jim Carrey.

Ben Schwartz is making a dash for Paramount Pictures' Sonic the Hedgehog.

Here's a bit of movie casting that you didn't think of, yet kind of makes sense-Variety reports that Ben Schwartz of House of Lies and Parks and Recreation fame will voice the titular blue hedgehog in the Sonic the Hedgehog live-action movie. And now he's getting his own movie, and the actor who will voice the speedy, blue hero has been revealed.

In case you didn't know, a live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie (which will mix CGI with real life footage) is in the works. On top of that, Schwartz also provides the voice of the blue clad Dewey Duck on Disney XD's revamp of DuckTales.




The Sonic movie is being directed by Jeff Fowler, whose 2005 animated movie Gopher Broke was nominated for an Oscar.

The film will be taking a live-action/CG approach, with Marsden, Sumpter, Carrey and other actors interacting with Sonic and company in CG form.

The movie is now filming in Canada, and one of the first images from the set emerged recently. Deadpool 1 director Tim Miller is producing.
