When he’s not playing Macavity in Cats or Bloodsport in The Suicide Squad, Idris Elba is usually cast as a gruff guy masterminding a drug empire in Baltimore or a commander fighting giant kaijus.
His next big role? A CGI echidna with giant fists. You heard right: Idris Elba will be voicing Knuckles in the upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog sequel, which is due in 2022.

What’s that distant sound? Why that’s the internet losing its collective mind over this awesome casting decision.
