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

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

Since then, Sonic has spawned endless video games, cartoons, and even the longest running comic book based on a video game. The film is being labeled a live-action family film, but CGI elements will most likely be used to create Sonic and his friends. Schwartz will voice an animated Sonic, but considering how great his own hair is they might want to consider also having him do motion-capture to bring the blue hedgehog to life. Schwartz now lends his voice to Dewey in Disney Channel's Duck Tales reboot, and he will later be heard as the voice of Leonardo in the Nickelodeon animated series, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which is set to debut this September. And now he's getting his own movie, and the actor who will voice the speedy, blue hero has been revealed.

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.

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

Schwartz joins a cast that includes James Marsden, Tika Sumpter, and Jim Carrey. Hopefully we'll be hearing more about this perplexing movie as production continues.

The movie is now filming in Canada, and one of the first images from the set emerged recently. Deadpool director Tim Miller is the executive producer for the film, while Jeff Fowler will direct.
