Idris Elba joins Cats

People dressed in cat suits dance across a trash heap, singing about which of them will be chosen by the Jellicle Leader. An armored figure steps from the shadows. It’s Idris Elba‘s Stacker Pentecost from Pacific Rim, and he’s here to cancel the catpocalypse. /daydream

Back in reality, Idris Elba is the latest actor to come on board Les Miserables director Tom Hooper‘s Cats movie musical, joining an eclectic cast of performers who range from Taylor Swift to Sir Ian McKellen.

Word on the streets of London is that James Bond franchise producers may be approaching Game of Thrones star Richard Madden to take over the role of 007, inspired by his recent turn on the BBC drama Bodyguard, which was picked up for distribution in the United States by Netflix not too long ago.
