Collider reports that Adam Pally (The Mindy Project, Iron Man 3) and Neal McDonough (Captain America: The First Avenger) have been cast to join Paramount's Sonic the Hedgehog movie. Standard Sonic stuff then.

Paramount Pictures' live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie is moving fast and loose - in more ways than one! And now he's getting his own movie, and the actor who will voice the speedy, blue hero has been revealed. 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.

Some context for the above tweet, this isn't the first iconic "blue" character from the 90s that Schwartz has voiced. That's quite the collection of blue cartoon characters Schwartz has.

The seven-year deal certainly puts Chelsea in a position of strength which had been lacking with outgoing Courtois . According to sources, Real Madrid will pay Chelsea £35 million (€38.8m, $45m) for the Belgium global .

Ben Schwartz is set to voice the titular video game star in the film, which will co-star James Marsden, Tika Sumpter and Jim Carrey. It's a surprising casting for the actor, but his history of zany roles may actually make him a good fit.

Marsden will play a small-town cop from South Dakota who ends up going on a road trip to San Francisco with Sonic the Hedgehog as they race against the evil Dr. Robotnik (Carrey) to recover Sonic's rings. Hopefully we'll be hearing more about this perplexing movie as production continues. Fowler also co-directed the 2005 Oscar-nominated animated short "Gopher Broke". The film will dash into theaters on November 15, 2019.
