Benny from "Gnomeo and Juliet" is a character in the animated film. Benny ("Gnomeo and Juliet") is voiced by actor Matt Lucas.

Benny is Gnomeo's impetuous best friend, always extra eager to get involved—especially if it involves winding up the Reds next door. Benny looks up to Gnomeo and wants to take a bigger role in the Blues' escapades. But Benny takes himself a little too seriously and has an inflated perception of himself and his abilities. His enthusiasm, coupled with his limitations, creates a dangerous combination.

Matt Lucas was called on to provide the voice of Benny. "He doesn't always think before he acts," says Lucas of his character. "But he's very spirited, very warm and funny, just not quite as intelligent as he would like to think.

"My mother and stepfather have a couple gnomes," Lucas continues. "I don't mind the gnome. They're kind of fun. So many people have them in their gardens, the film seems to ask, 'What if these gnomes could talk?'"
