I’m not certain, but I may have just had some kind of orgasmic aneurysm hybrid pop a few brain cells. I read two tidbits that caused a rush and a push in my head, and on top of the Gillian Anderson news, this may just push me over the edge of sanity.
Oh, who am I kidding, I was already there. First up, our old Wire pal Dominic West — who stars in Showtime’s upcoming The Affair — told ShortList that he and Idris Elba had been in the studio for Finding Dory:
“I saw Idris recently. We’re both in the sequel to Finding Nemo, so we were recording that. I’m in pretty regular contact with a lot of guys from The Wire - a lot of them are godparents to my kids, so I love them dearly.”
Since we’ve heard practically nothing about Dory, other than that Ellen DeGeneres and Albert Brooks will return, this is pretty spectacular news. I mean, who even cares who they’re playing? It’s Idris and Dominic.
The next bit of excitement hit when in an interview with Collider about his upcoming film No Good Deed, Idris was asked if there was any chance of more Luther (which we were pretty sure was done, save for a possible prequel). His response was…positive.
“Well, I’d like to say we are; I don’t know when, but we’re definitly trying to do something new for the TV version of Luther, and then go into a film.”
So there you have it…the impetus to my braingasm.
Finding Dory also stars Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, Willem Dafoe, Ty Burrell, Vicki Lewis and Kaitlin Olson; it comes nowhere near a theater until June 17, 2016.
