Sonic the Hedgehog stars Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik, James Marsden, Natasha Rothwell, Tika Sumpter, Neal McDonough, and Adam Pally. Ben Schwartz is providing the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog.

Sonic the Hedgehog is a live-action adventure comedy based on the global blockbuster videogame franchise from SEGA that centers on the infamously brash bright blue hedgehog.

The film follows the (mis)adventures of Sonic as he navigates the complexities of life on Earth with his newfound – human – best friend Tom Wachowski (Marsden). Sonic and Tom join forces to try and stop the villainous Dr. Robotnik (Carrey) from capturing Sonic and using his immense powers for world domination.

Jeff Fowler directed the movie from a script by Patrick Casey, Josh Miller and Oren Uziel. Neal H. Moritz (Fast & Furious films), Toru Nakahara, and Takeshi Ito are producing.

The co-producers are Dmitri Johnson and Dan Evans, and the executive producers are Hajime Satomi, Haruki Satomi, Masanao Maeda, Toby Ascher, Nan Morales and Tim Miller.

Sonic the Hedgehog was first seen in 1991 on the SEGA Genesis. Since then, the character was inducted into the “World Video Game Hall of Fame” in 2016 at The Strong National Museum of Play in Rochester, New York.

Most recently, the popular franchise has seen two new hit releases in 2017, Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces (PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PC).

In addition to Sonic the Hedgehog, Jim Carrey can currently be seen in two seasons of Kidding on Showtime. Kidding features Carrey in his Golden Globe-nominated performance as the iconic children’s television host, Jeff Pickles.

The second season picks up moments after season one’s cliffhanger, and with his beloved “Mr. Pickles’ Puppet Time” off the air for the first time in 30 years, Jeff must find a way to communicate with his many fans who still need him. Jeff creates a new and controversial method to talk directly to children across the world only to become the target of animosity for the first time in his career.

As Jeff navigates the most complicated moral gray areas of his life, he discovers a new side of himself in a season full of music, magic, puppets and pathos.
