We’ll take any excuse to talk with Ben Schwartz. The razor-sharp comedian has bene entertaining us for years, either as part of NBC’s Parks and Rec or his various improv projects, to his latest role of Sonic in the Paramount Pictures hit Sonic the Hedgehog. With that movie hitting digital and available to rent, ReelBlend asked Schwartz to hop on Skype for a quick chat.
You have to give this one a listen!
He also weighs in on collaborating with Jim Carrey, his reactions to the movie’s record-setting opening weekend, his love of video games, and more.
But we didn’t keep it to Sonic. Schwartz wouldn’t let us. He taught us a fun new game (which we played on the spot). He talked about his upcoming Netflix projects. And we all shared pop-culture stories from our time in the entertainment industry. This is exactly the type of interview that ReelBlend was meant to host. We hope that you enjoy it!
