It was a long time ago when we first told you Jim Carrey is set to star in the role of Doctor Robotnik in 'Sonic the Hedgehog' movie. Now, a 'Sonic the Hedgehog' movie leak has given us the very first look at Carrey's portrayal of the villainous Dr. Robotnik. The first leaked image of Carrey as Dr. Robotnik in the upcoming 2019 live-action animated film based on the video game franchise of the same name has fans excited.
The image was leaked via @SEGAbits, a fan-operated SEGA news Twitter account. We can see Carrey wearing a red jacket, sporting a bushy moustache and aviator goggles, all while piloting what looks like an aircraft. The upcoming film is based on the video game franchise of the same name published by Sega.
'Sonic the Hedgehog' is directed by Jeff Fowler in his feature directorial debut and written by Patrick Casey, Josh Miller and Oren Uziel, from a story by Van Robichaux and Evan Susser. The film stars Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog and Carrey as Sonic's nemesis Dr. Robotnik, alongside James Marsden as Tom Wachowski, Tika Sumpter, Adam Pally, and Neal McDonough.
The same @SEGAbits account also posted a picture of Carrey allegedly from his Instagram (although we were unable to find this exact image) showing Carrey’s haircut, which matches the leaked image.
