We now know who will be the Sonic’s voice. However, Variety’s reporting that it won’t be Roger Craig Smith:
Ben Schwartz has been tapped to voice the title character in Paramount Pictures’ “Sonic the Hedgehog” movie, sources tell Variety.
James Marsden, Tika Sumpter, and Jim Carrey will also star in the live-action hybrid.
Schwartz is no stranger to voicing classic characters. He’s currently Dewey Duck on Disney Channel’s reboot of “Duck Tales” and will voice Leonardo in Nickelodeon’s “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.”
Jim Carrey recently confirmed he will, indeed, play Eggman in the movie.
