Idris Elba will take on his most challenging role yet: A red echidna. That's right, Elba is playing the role of Knuckles in the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie sequel (presumably Sonic the Hedgehog 2) that is slated to arrive in 2022. The Hollywood star tweeted out the announcement today.

I, for one, think he's going to be amazing in the role. Elba is in the recently released The Suicide Squad. He has done some voice work in the past, including Chief Bogo in Zootopia, Fluke in Finding Dory, and Coach Ernie Ames in NBA 2K20.

A special shoutout to @MikeJMika on Twitter for that fantastic banner photo seen at the top of the article.
