Ben Schwartz Set To Voice Paramount's 'Sonic The Hedgehog'

Sonic is a cool hedgehog with plenty of attitude. The film is being labeled a live-action family film, but CGI elements will most likely be used to create Sonic and his friends.

Variety reports Ben Schwartz is set to voice Sonic the Hedgehog himself in the upcoming feature film adaptation from Paramount Pictures. 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.

Some context for the above tweet, this isn't the first iconic "blue" character from the 90s that Schwartz has voiced. If he can put on a convincing Southern drawl, maybe he'll voice Huckleberry Hound for Hanna-Barbera. Whether or not it lives up to the hype remains to be seen, but it's nice to see that Schwartz seems genuinely confident about the project.

Back in July we learned the actor would be playing Sonic's arch nemesis Dr. Eggman, aka Dr. Robotnik, and while appearing at a Television Critics Association press tour panel for his Showtime series Kidding (which looks absolutely fantastic) he was asked about his role in Sonic the Hedgehog, to which Carrey confirmed his role would be live-action. When asked that very question, Carrey merely said, "Magic!" Jeff Fowler, who received an Oscar nomination for his 2005 animated short Gopher Broke, is directing, with Deadpool director Tim Miller serving as executive producing alongside Toby Ascher.

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