Ben Schwartz Says Playing 'Sonic' In Film Is 'Dream Come True'!

Ben Schwartz stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night (January 28) and discussed his exciting role as the voice of Sonic in the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog film!

“It’s crazy because I played it in 1991, I was a huge fan of the games. Then when they were making this film and they asked if I would do it, it’s like a dream come true because now I get to be the voice,” the 38-year-old actor told Jimmy about taking the lead role.

“Just like how your son was introduced to it then, maybe some people watch it now and I’ll be the way that they are getting introduced to the character, it’s crazy. It blows my mind,” Ben continued in reference to how Kimmel‘s son was into Sonic when he was younger.

“I’m spreading the Sonic love on Valentine’s Day,” Ben said in reference to the film’s February 14 release date.
