David Jamieson, the West Midlands Police & Crime Commissioner, said these figures on drug-related deaths are "tragic". The drug can up to 100 times stronger than heroin and is sometimes prescribed as a painkiller for the terminally ill.
Schwartz seems pretty stoked about the news, tweeting out his excitement on Wednesday evening.
The actor and comedian is set to voice the lead character in the hybrid live-action/CGI movie based on the popular '90s videogame about a fleet-footed furball. However, we all know who the most ridiculous cartoon character brought to life by Schwartz is. Schwartz now lends his voice to Dewey in Disney Channel's Duck Tales reboot, and he will later be heard as the voice of Leonardo in the Nickelodeon animated series, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which is set to debut this September.
