The Sonic the Hedgehog movie has been filling out its cast, with James Marsden playing a small town sheriff named Tom Wachowski and Jim Carrey starring as Dr. Robotnik/Eggman.

Sonic is a cool hedgehog with plenty of attitude.

Yes, a live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie is in production, and the cast is starting to trickle out online.

Schwartz is not new to the voice acting game, now starring as Dewey Duck on the Disney Channel reboot of Duck Tales and will voice Leonardo in Nickelodeon's upcoming Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Since then, Sonic has spawned endless video games, cartoons, and even the longest running comic book based on a video game. Now it's time to move on to the lead, which has Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation, Dewey in the new Ducktales show) voicing Sonic himself.

Schwartz is certainly an in-demand voice actor now, and perhaps not coincidentally, this facet of his career really took off after the actor lent his voice to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The movie will mix CG and live-action, and Carrey confirmed that his character will be live-action.

Set for release on November 15, 2019, Sonic the Hedgehog will be the directorial debut of Jeff Fowler, who is directing from a script by Patrick Casey and Josh Miller (12 Deadly Days).
