Ben Schwartz to Voice Sonic the Hedgehog in Live-Action Movie

Ben Schwartz to Voice Sonic the Hedgehog in Live-Action Movie Ben Schwartz to Voice Sonic the Hedgehog in Live-Action Movie

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

Ben Schwartz is stepping into the role of one of the most beloved video game characters of all time.

Envisioned as a synthesis of live-action and CGI, the film is to center around Sonic and his friends Tails the fox and Knuckles the echidna.

Schwartz has voiced Dewey Duck on Disney Channel's reboot of Duck Tales and is also voicing Leonardo in Nickelodeon's Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Considering the unique look of Robotnik, as you can see above, people have been curious how they're going to pull off this character in the movie. "Mixed with desperation." So perhaps we'll be getting Carrey under a lot of prosthetic make-up as he's done before in How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events.

The past few months have had plenty of casting announcements for the live-action/CG hybrid Sonic the Hedgehog movie, from James Marsden to Jim Carrey, who was recently lined up to play Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik.

The November 2019 movie will be directed by Jeff Fowler, who was involved on the animation side on "Where the Wild Things Are", and 2003's "Rockfish", an award-winning short from "Deadpool" director Tim Miller.
