Idris gets animated
Idris attended the Film premiere of his latest role yesterday and it’s a little bit different from his usual. The smooth English actor that is well known for his roles in “Luther” and the “The Wire” has lent his voice to the latest Disney film Zootopia.
Idris Elba is large and in charge as the cape buffalo Police Chief Bogo in this exclusive first clip from Disney’s animated Zootopia.
The actor was thrilled to attend the UK gala screening of the film at the Hackney Picturehouse on Monday night.
As he walked the red carpet Idris mimicked the pose his character pulled on a large billboard.
He crossed his arms and looked up menacingly at the cartoon buffalo. However, he soon broke into a smile befitting of a children’s movie event.
The year has started well for Idris despite breaking up from his girlfriend and moving out last year, 2016 has seen Idris collect a number of awards. He was rewarded for his memorable performance in Beasts of No Nation with a Spirit Award for Best Supporting Male Actor, he also picked up two gongs at the Screen Actors Guild awards for Outstanding Performance By A Male Actor In A Supporting Role In A Motion Picture and Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries for his portrayal of the titular role in Luther.
Zooptopia is out in Cinemas soon
