Actor Idris Elba had a bit of trouble finding Knuckles’s voice for Sonic the Hedgehog 2: The Movie.
In an interview with the New York Times, Elba opened up about the process behind finding his voice for the beloved echidna, who takes on a villainous role in Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
“I actually wanted to try to play [Knuckles] with a squeaky voice,” Elba said. “I thought that might be funny. But they didn’t think that was funny and that idea got nixed immediately. But we did try different voices, cadences, accents. Knuckles isn’t a big talker, but when he does speak, he’s very blunt.”
