Ben Schwartz to Voice ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ in Upcoming Movie

The voice of BB8 is now the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog

Paramount Pictures' live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie is moving fast and loose - in more ways than one! Over the years, he's become known for being a bit of a radical, with his edgy-sounding voice.

Schwartz joins a cast that includes James Marsden, Tika Sumpter, and Jim Carrey.

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. He's also done voice work for the video game Turbo: Super Stunt Squad, and appeared in the television series, Parks and Recreation.

The Sonic the Hedgehog movie is filming for a while now but we haven't heard anything about who would be playing the titular character.

What do you think about this casting choice for the voice of Sonic? 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. Moritz is producing with "Deadpool" director Tim Miller executive producing, along with Toby Ascher.
