Jim Carrey in Talks to Play Dr. Robotnik in Sonic the Hedgehog Movie

Let me show ya somethin', Sonic!

 

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.
