Idris Elba has been rumored to be in the new Finding Nemo sequal “Finding Dory”. Now, this is just a rumor, but who knows, maybe it could happen! And if it does, he’ll be along side his The Wire co-worker Dominic West. — Wire alums Idris Elba and Dominic West are reportedly lending their voices to Finding Dory, Disney and Pixar’s followup to Finding Nemo. West revealed the news in an interview with ShortList magazine this week. “I saw Idris recently,” West said in the interview. “We’re both in the sequel to Finding Nemo, so we were recording that.” Elba is also voicing the role of Shere Khan in Disney’s The Jungle Book, which is currently filming. The interesting thing here is that West implies that he and Elba were in the studio at the same time, which hopefully means that their unknown characters will have scenes together.

The Opening Ceremony of the first ever Invictus Games, presented by Jaguar Land Rover, took place on September 10th, marking the start of the highly anticipated international sports competition for ‘wounded warriors’ in London. Singer Laura Wright took to the stage followed by Idris Elba who recited ‘Invictus’, the famous 1875 poem by William Ernest Henley that proclaims strength in the face of adversity.

The ceremony paid tribute to the bravery of more than 400 competitors who will take part in nine sports over the next four days. Invictus means unconquerable. The men and women, who paraded to cheers from a 6,500 crowd, are military personnel wounded, sick or injured in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other conflicts down the years, many with life-changing amputations and other injuries. They have come from as far afield as Afghanistan, Australia, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, France, Georgia, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, the United States and Britain to answer Harry’s challenge to show the world how wounded warriors can rebuild their lives.

4 photos have been added to our gallery. Keep a look out for more photos either this week or next week! There’s a ton more that will be added.

Idris Elba does the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on Jimmy Kimmel Live and calls out Bradley Cooper, Taraji P. Henson and Prince Harry! #ALSIceBucketChallenge

August 27th, 2014 – Idris Elba is promising fans that there will be more of his BBC series “Luther.” Following statements at the 66th primetime Emmy Awards saying the show will continue on in some form, Elba elaborates on his plans and dreams for the critically acclaimed detective series.

“Neil Cross and I was at the table last night at dinner going, ‘Are we doing this? We doing it? We doing it? We doing it,” Elba tells Zap2it while promoting his new movie “No Good Deed.” “It’s not inked. There’s no situation yet, but it’s on the cards. I want to see it happen. We’re going to get more ‘Luther.'”

When pressed for more information, Elba admits that the next installation of the “Luther” story won’t be a new season, or a feature film like was originally hoped for. He still does hope for a “Luther” movie, though.

“I think we just figured out a mechanism to get to the movie easier. Right now it felt a little unorganic to go from three seasons, then a movie. So what we’re designing is this middle pit section, designed to introduce the audience toward the movie,” Elba explains. “I think it would be a one-off special; a big two-hour special of ‘Luther’ which is designed to spear the audience into going, ‘OK, now we can go into big movie time.'”

August 22nd, 2014 — Idris Elba is flexing a new muscle these days: his directing muscle. The Golden Globe-winning actor is teaming up with longtime pal K. Michelle (Love & Hip Hop) for her Rebellious Soul: The Musical. The hip hopera airs on VH1 on Tuesday, August 19. Described by the network as a “dark and cautionary tale,” Rebellious Soul brings Michelle’s album to life through narrative. Think R.Kelly’s Trapped in the Closet.

“[R. Kelly] was my mentor when I first got in the business,” Michelle tells ET Online. “I used to really watch [Trapped in the Closet] and pay close attention to it. After that, I always wanted to do it.” Elba, who immediately jumped on board after an informal conversation with Michelle. “I was sitting around talking to him about it. He said he wanted to do it and I was like, ‘No, you don’t.’ But he was on it the next day,” she says. “He and I talked about my vision and he completely stepped it up. He didn’t want it to be shot like a regular music video, he wanted it to have a different texture to it.”

“It’s really crazy to see how humble and down to earth this man is,” Michelle gushes. “Directing, he’s so creative. He’s so in the zone. Nothing distracts him and he’s not going to let anything distract that cast.” That’s not to say that it was all work on no play. “He was big on me having as many drinks as I like,” she adds with a laugh. “Keeping me focused! He’s about business, man. I look forward to seeing more things from him. He’s really good at [directing].”
