Doctor Eggman, AKA Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik, has been the lead villain of the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise since the first entry in 1991. Now, in a sentence I never thought I'd type, Jim Carrey is in talks to play him in the upcoming live-action movie.
According to an exclusive report on Deadline, Jim Carrey is currently negotiating for the role of Eggman in the upcoming film, which will be a mix of live-action and CG animation. Jeff Fowler is directing based on a script by Pat Casey and Josh Miller, and other actors lined up to star include James Marsden and Tika Sumpter.
If we truly live in a just and beautiful world, these negotiations will work out and we'll get to see Jim Carrey yelling at Sonic on the big screen.
