Idris Elba has frequently been touted as a potential replacement for Daniel Craig in the James Bond role. He’s part of the Marvel Comics universe as a minor character named Heimdall. Idris might be better known for his deep, British voice in movies like Jungle Book, Finding Dory and Zootopia.
He’s currently shooting the movie Hobbs and Shaw with former Sexist Man Alive Dwayne Johnson. Next year, Idris Elba joins Taylor Swift and Jennifer Hudson in the adaptation of the Broadway musical Cats.
