Adam Pally


  1. Luka Jones, Best Friends Forever, TV, 2012.     Change of lover for the creator and star Lennon Parhem (named after guess who?), but it didn’t save her series. NBC killed it on May 11, a month after Pally started starring as “a straight guy who likes dudes” in ABC’s Happy Endings, a mid-season replacement that worked.
  2. Jim Carrey, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, 2012.     Vengeance is Jim’s. Steve Carell  had made his name by stealing Bruce Almighty from Carrey. Having beaten Matthew Broderick , Sacha Baron Cohen and the unknown Pally to the Criss Angel-esque role, Jim stole this  tale of magicians, old and  new, from the upper-billed Carell.
  3. Ben Schwartz, Sonic the Hedgehog, 2019. For the new movie version of the video game, 11 actors tested for the voice of the Blue Blur:  Pallyt, Charlie Day, Dane Dehaan, Adam Devine, Will Forte, Josh Gad, Bill Hader, Freddie Highmore, Dylan O’Brien, Jim Parsons,  Andy Samberg, Playing Sonic was an insane honour, said Schwartz. As was co-starring with his hero, Jim Carrey, as the evil Dr Robotnik.

  4. James Marsden, Sonic the Hedgehog, 2019. A further, 15 actors jostled for Tom Wachowski, the Montana cop helping the speedy blue blur alien from another planet in his fight against Jim Carrey. They were: Jack Black, Ansel Elgort, Chris Evans, Bill Hader (also up for voicing Sonic), Ed Helms, Jake Johnson, Michael B. Jordan, Adam Pally again (he wound up as Wade, Tom’s deputy), Chris Pratt, Paul Rudd, Jason Segal, Justin Timberlake, Milo Ventimiglia, Owen Wilson and Marsden, who was ready for “as many as they want to make. it was so much fun to see Jim] enjoying himself again.”
