Ben Schwartz Reveals He Will Voice Sonic The Hedgehog In Upcoming Movie

Ben Schwartz Reveals He Will Voice Sonic The Hedgehog In Upcoming Movie

Ben Schwartz, better known as Parks and Recreation's charmingly idiotic Jean-Ralphio, has been cast in the titular role of the Blue Blur in the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie, Variety reports. Standard Sonic stuff then.

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. And now he's getting his own movie, and the actor who will voice the speedy, blue hero has been revealed. However, it's worth pointing out that Schwartz has an extensive history with voice acting, having done work for critically-acclaimed animated shows like Bob's Burgers, BoJack Horseman, the DuckTales reboot, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and more. It's a surprising casting for the actor, but his history of zany roles may actually make him a good fit. We're noticing a lot of blue with this one.




Jim Carrey discussed his plan for how to bring Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik to life in the upcoming "Sonic the Hedgehog" movie during the Television Critics Association's summer press tour on Monday. Hopefully we'll be hearing more about this perplexing movie as production continues. Deadpool director Tim Miller is the executive producer for the film, while Jeff Fowler will direct.

Sonic the Hedgehog is scheduled to start filming this year, with a planned release date of November 15, 2019.
