Sonic the Hedgehog is currently shooting in Vancouver, Canada. This week, we learned Paramount Pictures squared away Ben Schwartz to voice the titular speedy, blue critter made famous by Sega video games. The live-action side of the cast already has Jim Carrey lined up as Dr. Robotnik, James Marsden as a small town cop, and Tika Sumpter in an unknown role. But two more names have both been added to the roster and each has a history with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Adam Pally (Iron Man 3) and Neal McDonough (Captain America: The First Avenger) have been added to the Sonic the Hedgehog movie cast, but we only know who one of them is playing. Find out more below. Read More »
Sonic the Hedgehog was a giant hit after debuting on the SEGA Genesis in 1991. Since then, Sonic has spawned endless video games, cartoons, and even the longest running comic book based on a video game. And now he’s getting his own movie, and the actor who will voice the speedy, blue hero has been revealed.
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. While Sonic will be created using computer animation, this is a live-action hybrid, and one character from the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise will not be given the digital treatment. Read More »
All the way back in 1994, Jim Carrey was at the top of his game. Following a run of hits with Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Mask and Dumb and Dumber, he headed into blockbuster territory by playing the over-the-top villain The Riddler, a mad scientist named Edward Nygma turned psychopath in the critically scorned Batman Forever. Now the actor is heading back to villainous genius territory for an upcoming video game adaptation.
Sonic the Hedgehog will give the speedy blue critter from SEGA his own big screen adventure. James Marsden has already been tapped to co-star in the movie, but not as the titular speedster. And now Jim Carrey is boarding the project as Sonic’s arch nemesis, a diabolical scientist named Doctor Eggman, also known as Robotnik. Read More »
