And now Idris Elba is in final talks to join the star-studded cast of the Cats musical, according to Deadline.

Some of us thought we might be able to skip Cats entirely, understanding implicitly that a film adaptation of Cats directed by Tom Hooper and starring Taylor Swift and James Corden would not be a thing we would enjoy. No word on which role Elba is eyeing, but I personally can confirm that no matter which cat the actor plays it will stir up a number of confusing sexual feelings in a lot of people. The pic is now in pre-production. Macavity is the villain of the piece, wrecking havoc on the other cats as they try to determine who will be the chosen one. The character was originally portrayed by Richard Pettyfer in the original West End production, and by Kenneth Ard in the Broadway production. In Act II, there are two songs about him: "Macavity: The Mystery Cat" sung by Demeter, Bombalurina, and female feline back-up; and "Macavity Fight" performed by Macavity, Demeter, Munkustrap and Alonzo.
