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

Ben Schwartz Voicing Sonic the Hedgehog In the Forthcoming Film

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.

House of Lies series regular and Parks and Recreation guest star Ben Schwartz has landed the voice role of Sonic the Hedgehog, making him the biggest star to voice the character since Family Matters star Jaleel White had the honor on the animated series The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog in 1993.

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.

How to see the Perseid meteor shower peak this weekend
They should start whizzing across the sky before midnight, but the best displays will be in the hours before dawn. It's the biggest meteor shower of the year , so you better stay up late and grab your binoculars.

Now shooting under Paramount Pictures, the live action Sonic the Hedgehog film also features former X-Men actor James Marsden among its growing cast, with director Jeff Fowler at the helm, noted for receiving an Oscar nod for 2005 animated short "Gopher Broke". That gives Ben Schwartz plenty of time to also land roles as the new voice of Beavis, Buster Bunny, Tommy Pickles, and Homer Simpson's trousers before we see him spin into theaters. We're noticing a lot of blue with this one.

Previously announced cast members include WestWorld and Hop's James Marsden along with Tika Sumpter who has featured in the likes of Gossip Girl and Law & Order. Hopefully we'll be hearing more about this perplexing movie as production continues. Visual effects master and Deadpool director Tim Miller is on board as an executive producer and Neal H. Moritz (the Fast and Furious franchise) is producing too. It's now set to premiere on November 15, 2019.
