'The Jungle Book' Tiger Is Going To Sound Like Idris Elba

March 7, 2014


With his title role in Mandela bringing Idris Elba some long-overdue recognition, at last the actor is getting those juicy, CGI tiger parts. According to Deadline, the Luther star will provide the voice of Shere Khan in Disney and Jon Favreau's Jungle Book adaptation. That puts Disney's take slightly ahead of Warner Bros. and Ron Howard's rival Jungle Book, which has yet to begin casting and thus does not have Idris Elba being probably the best Shere Khan voice. Time to call in a Tom Hanks Baloo, Ron.
