It looks like actor Ben Schwartz has found his understudy for the live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie, Larry King.

While appearing on Larry King Now, Schwartz explained the classic Sega character to the veteran TV host, who apparently had never heard of the blue, fast-paced, and chili-dog-eating member of the Erinaceinae family.

"As a kid, it's like one of the most iconic video games of all time," Schwartz said. "I wasn't good enough to [play] a human being. Just my voice," he joked.

When King asked him to give a little preview of what Sonic will sound like in the film, Schwartz declined, stating that the studio wants to keep everything secretive for now. However, he turned the tables on his questioner, prompting King to provide his own Sonic voice. 

Watch King's admirable effort below:

Helmed by Gopher Broke's Jim Fowler, Sonic the Hedgehog will race into theaters on Nov. 15, 2019. James Marsden plays Green Hills police officer Tom Wachowski, who helps the titular hedgehog escape from the authoritiesJim Carrey will take on the role of the nefarious and mustachioed Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik.

"I can't wait to see where this goes," stated Schwartz.
