It was a family affair at the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 premiere for James Marsden. ET’s Denny Directo spoke to the 48-year-old actor at the film’s premiere in Los Angeles Tuesday night, where he gushed over sharing the family-friendly sequel with his children.
“I feel like I am, but sometimes I get a little ahead of myself. We’ll see,” Marsden said about scoring cool points with his children, Jack, 21, Mary, 16 and William, 9, by bringing them to the premiere. “They’re very proud of their dad. And it’s fun to go see a movie that I can see and enjoy, my nine-year-old can see and enjoy, my 16-year-old, my 21-year-old. Good, family movie.”
For part two, Marsden and the Sonic the Hedgehog cast ventured out to Hawaii, which he called “the dream.”

Opening in theaters on April 8th is the new movie ‘Sonic the Hedgehog 2,’ which is a sequel to 2020’s ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ and is based on the popular Sega video game.
The movie once again stars Ben Schwartz (‘The Afterparty’) as the voice of Sonic, and adds to the cast Colleen O’Shaughnessey as the voice of Tails and Idris Elba as the voice of Knuckles.

“We find Sonic growing up a little bit, and we see shades of him starting to become a teenager and everything that entails,” Marsden told the Daily News. “Pressing the boundaries a bit more than he normally does, sneaking out at night and trying to be Batman, or Blue Justice as he calls himself.
“He wants to use his powers for good, but he’s still a little young to be doing it and rough around the edges.”
Zooming into theaters Friday, the movie picks up after the lightning-quick Sonic saved Earth in 2020′s original film by defeating Jim Carrey’s power-hungry mad scientist, Doctor Robotnik. In the sequel, the alien hedgehog must work again with Marsden’s Tom Wachowski — the sheriff in their small town of Green Hills, Mont. — after Robotnik returns with a fearsome new ally: the ultra-strong space echidna Knuckles.

The 48-year-old, who is currently starring in The Boss Baby 2: Family Business, revealed to Yahoo Lifestyle he was “too scared” to go through with the role, admitting it was a “tough” decision for him.
