In case you missed it, Sonic the Hedgehog is available today on digital thanks to an early release due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, with a physical release set for May 19th.

"I'm a big proponent of working it and working it and working it, and coming in with 20 ideas," Carrey says in the exclusive clip, "and the director will go, 'Just throw them out, see what happens.'"

"It is a joy to be on the receiving end of all of Jim's antics," Marden adds. You can check out the full clip at the top of the article!
