Ben Schwartz Answers 'Sonic' Fan Questions | Entertainment Weekly
I do have some favorite quotes but one of my favorite quotes is I try to do an impression of Jim Carrey quote from Dumb and Dumber there's a line in Dumb and Dumber where he goes he's listing things and he says our pets heads are falling off and in the movie I have a line where there's a fish on my head and I end my list with there's a fish on my head I loved

sonic

2 to me was so fun what a great question it
ben schwartz answers sonic fan questions entertainment weekly
is for everybody there's stuff there in the film so if you play the video games before there's all these little Easter eggs that like we reward people who played but if you haven't we've created a movie that you get to enjoy without having played the game as well so it's a little bit for everything I guess the movies for free 5:8 when I found out I got the role first of all I did this test a long time ago as kind of a favor which was so fun and we did it to try to sell it to
Paramount or any studio primont picked it up and um when I finally found out that you know what they're gonna go with me for the actual movie I was walking down a street and Jeff Fowler the director called me and I did one of these geez I did and nobody's there to watch it but it was very embarrassing thank you for the question it is an insane honor it's an incredible honor because I was playing these games as a kid in 1991 and then throughout so the idea that maybe my voice will be
the one that brings in a new generation to the

sonic

franchise and then to see the legacy and all the great people who boy

Sonic

and to play the games and to read the comic books it's it's incredible I feel very very lucky it was amazing meeting him because he's one of my I mean he's a legend he's an icon he's someone I looked up to all coming up but for me it was very exciting and then to talk to him and for him to be so kind he's so lovely and connects with you so
it was a thrill Dumb and Dumber is one of my top 5 favorite movies of all time I have watched that movie so many times so it was incredible the way that I kind of figured it out I played the video games a bunch right but then when I read the script to me it felt like

Sonic

was like this little kid that had all this energy he never got to do the things that he really wanted to do and then finally he was let out and allowed to do whatever he wanted and stuff like that so I kind of played with that
ben schwartz answers sonic fan questions entertainment weekly
energy and excitement I wanted you to connect with

Sonic

in a way that the comedy works but also the emotion works and he's funny and he's really confident because nobody can catch up to him and stuff like that so I wanted you to feel like you were talking to something to really relate to I loved cartoons growing up like absolutely adored animation I watched the Disney Afternoon every day after elementary school and then in high school was watching cartoons The Simpsons and the Futurama
are two of the things that really shaped the way I write and think about comedy and so I always loved voice acting and I always want to get into it it's a kind of hard thing to break into so I tried very hard it got very lucky and got Randy Cunningham was my first big one but I always loved it so much I always wanted to be a part of it we have no idea I think right now what happens is that the movie comes out and we hope that it does well because I would love to play

sonic

in a movie again
so it's crazy to think that we worked all this stuff and we're really excited by it it seems like people are really excited and passionate about it and now we just wait to see if people watch it and then we make some decisions off of that so I hope that a bunch of people watch it it comes out on Thursday night and then Friday come on up on that sounds fantastic that sounds like a great idea I would suggest if possible don't spoil the idea of what happens to Survivor to everybody in
your theater but if you can could you please dress as your favorite contestant from Survivor when you go see the film I feel like it I feel like you earned it you should do it I would be thrilled to voice

sonic

in a sequel to the film if a sequel happened what a great question I was I was waiting for these fun fun

questions

that really like the ones that people really want to know about um the question I'll just repeated is why do cereal so I love cereal so I think why do cereal because
ben schwartz answers sonic fan questions entertainment weekly
it's great tyramine or why do surreal do what it do you guys fantastic I'm lactose intolerant and I'll still bite the bullet and if I answered why do cereal you know I'm coming at you or why so cereal my assumption is this is from The Dark Knight instead of saying why so serious you're saying why so cereal and your first one was a mistake so you didn't even mean to say why do cereal I already answered it here we are for round two why so cereal well do you see these scars
nobody tell you about these scars I got them from eating cereal there you go mashup of the movie referencing and the words cereal this is a great question the question is will
