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.

Scwartz, who is now voicing Dewey Duck on Disney Channel's Duck Tales reboot, can next be seen in the Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish comedy Night School.

Schwartz has some experience with voice acting, lending his distinct voice to the Ducktales reboot as Dewey Duck (the blue one) and the upcoming Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as Leonardo (the blue one). That's quite the collection of blue cartoon characters Schwartz has. You can find out more about that over here.

The film will be taking a live-action/CG approach, with Marsden, Sumpter, Carrey and other actors interacting with Sonic and company in CG form.

Considering the unique look of Robotnik, as you can see above, people have been curious how they're going to pull off this character in the movie. Hopefully we'll be hearing more about this perplexing movie as production continues. The film will dash into theaters on November 15, 2019. Deadpool's Tim Miller will serve as executive producer on the project.

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