Idris Elba Will Play the Villain in 'Fast and Furious' Spinoff 'Hobbs and Shaw'

Dwayne Johnson‘s special agent Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham‘s Deckard Shaw are teaming up in Hobbs and Shaw, Universal’s first Fast & Furious spinoff. When two characters of that caliber join forces, they’re going to need a formidable foe to face off against. Enter Idris Elba, who seems like a perfect addition to this film’s growing cast. Variety reports that Elba is in final negotiations to play the Hobbs and Shaw villain, but there are no details provided about his character. Elba has a variety of accents at his disposal, but maybe this will be the rare mainstream Hollywood blockbuster that allows him to use his natural British accent. I could easily see him playing a former a.ssociate of Statham’s Deckard Shaw who’s struck out on his own into the world of crime. He certainly has the physique to be believable as a former soldier
