Ben Schwartz to voice Sonic the Hedgehog in live-action movie

Based on the long-running (pun intended) Sega video game character and mascot, Sonic is a sprinting blue hedgehog on an endless quest to defeat Doctor Robotnik, a scientist who has imprisoned animals in robots and stolen magical Chaos Emeralds.

It's been announced that actor and comedian Ben Schwartz, perhaps best known for his work on Parks and Recreation as the obnoxious Jean-Realphio, will be playing the voice of Sonic in the Sonic the Hedgehog movie.

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.

As suspected, Jim Carrey will play the evil Robotnik in the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie for Paramount. On top of that, Schwartz also provides the voice of the blue clad Dewey Duck on Disney XD's revamp of DuckTales. You can find out more about that over here.

"Magic!" Carrey shouted. "Mixed with desperation".

Sonic the Hedgehog is in production, and will also star James Marsden and Tika Sumpter. Meanwhile, the film will be produced by Deadpool director Tim Miller, along with Toby Ascher and Neal H. Moritz. The film is set to be directed by Jeff Fowler, who previously worked on the Oscar-nominated Gopher Broke.
