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

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". Following a release date that is nearly a short year away, we've already got a full cast assembled for the live-action/CGI hybrid film.

Sonic the Hedgehog is in production, and will also star James Marsden and Tika Sumpter. Plot details remain under wraps but the film will be based on the iconic Sega Genesis game of the same name that kicked off the franchise back in 1991. While the premise of the movie isn't known yet, it's safe to assume that the super-fast blue animal will clash against the might of the evil Doctor Robotnik. Have you seen any of Schwartz's work? On top of that, this will not be the first character he voices. Until today, the title role still had yet to be filled, but we now know who is playing the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog in the upcoming film. Deadpool's Tim Miller will serve as executive producer on the project.


Schwartz's experience with voice acting will certainly pay off with the film, as he's portrayed Dewey in Disney's DuckTales reboot, as well as Leonardo in Ninja Turtles.
