Jim Carrey to Play Robotnik in Live Action Sonic Movie

The famous Liar Liar and Dumb and Dumber star Jim Carrey will reportedly be playing the sinister Mr. Robotnik in the upcoming live action Sonic the Hedgehog movie from Paramount.

Word comes by way of Deadline, who’ve reported from multiple sources that Carrey is in talks for the role. The Sonic Movie will be live action mixed with CG, so it’s safe to assume Carrey will don the fat suit and orange mustache.

James Marsden will play the titular role and Tika Sumpter will also star. Jeff Fowler will direct.
