We talked to Ben Schwartz about Space Force, space love, and space ice cream

The Sonic star is ready to blast off

Patrick Gill (he/him) has been making serious and unserious videos for Polygon since 2016. He also co-hosts & produces Polygon’s weekly livestreams on Twitch.

We had some burning questions about space, love, war, and dairy, so we reached out to chat with the one person who give us all the answers we needed: Ben Schwartz.

You may know Ben from his roles on Parks and Recreation, House of Lies, DuckTales, BoJack Horseman, or as the newest voice of Sonic the Hedgehog. He’s also one of the stars of Space Force, the new Netflix comedy series from Steve Carrell and the creators of The Office.

We hopped on Zoom to talk about his character (who is called “Fuck Tony for no apparent reason”), ice cream (which Ben Schwartz should not be eating), his co-stars (whom he has very nice things to say about), and much, much more.
