Idris Elba as the Voice of Shere Khan
Idris Elba will play Shere Khan who is the biggest villain in the movie. Shere Khan chased Mowgli throughout the original Jungle Book and one can only imagine he'll be doing the same in the live adaptation.
Elba originally began his career as a musician and DJ. Then in 2000, Elba transitioned over to film. He's been nominated for three Golden Globe Awards for Best Actor in a Miniseries or Television Film and four Primetime Emmy Award nominations.
