Ben Schwartz Voicing Sonic the Hedgehog In the Forthcoming Film

Sonic is a cool hedgehog with plenty of attitude. However, now we know who will be voicing the blue speedster: Parks and Recreation's Ben Schwartz.

Envisioned as a synthesis of live-action and CGI, the film is to center around Sonic and his friends Tails the fox and Knuckles the echidna.

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".

Schwartz has voiced Dewey Duck on Disney Channel's reboot of Duck Tales and is also voicing Leonardo in Nickelodeon's Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And now he's getting his own movie, and the actor who will voice the speedy, blue hero has been revealed. That's quite the collection of blue cartoon characters Schwartz has. The news comes after the confirmation that Jim Carrey will indeed portray a live-action Dr. Eggman in the same film. When asked that very question, Carrey merely said, "Magic!"

Sonic the Hedgehog is in production, and will also star James Marsden and Tika Sumpter.

The Sonic movie is being directed by Jeff Fowler, whose 2005 animated movie Gopher Broke was nominated for an Oscar.
