Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Casts Ben Schwartz and Jim Carrey As Leads

Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Casts Ben Schwartz and Jim Carrey As Leads

Some Sonic the Hedgehog fans may not be familiar with Schwartz, and may be anxious about his ability to do Sonic justice on the big screen. 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. Schwartz (perhaps best known as Parks and Recreation's obnoxious Jean-Ralphio) has a voice acting resume that includes Dewey in the DuckTales reboot, Rutabaga Rabbitowitz from BoJack Horseman, and a handful of other minor characters.

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

According to this report from Collider, Adam Pally and Neal McDonough will be joining the cast in yet undisclosed roles.

Ben Schwarz will be joining co-stars James Marsden, Tika Sumpter, and Jim Carrey in the upcoming live-action hybrid.

The Sonic movie is being directed by Jeff Fowler, whose 2005 animated movie Gopher Broke was nominated for an Oscar. The film is now scheduled to hit theaters on November 15, 2019, so stay tuned for more. Neal H. Moritz is producing, and Deadpool director Tim Miller is executive producing alongside Original Film exec Toby Ascher.
