Jim Carrey to star as robotnik in Sonic the Hedgehog

The villain in question is after all Dr Eggman, additionally referred to as Dr Robotnik, and if Carrey will bring the frenzied energy of Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Mask or perhaps A Series of Unfortunate Events, he may pull this off.

In fact, The Mask may truly be an honest point of reference, mixing CGI versions of Tex Avery-style cartoons with a live-action setting brightly. It cannot be any worse than once Sonic 06 mixed the characters up with realistically proportioned humans, can it?

Dr. Robotnik

Sonic the Hedgehog is expected to race into theaters on November 15, 2019.
