Idris Elba’s Voice Acting In ‘Sonic The Hedgehog 2’ Won’t Be ‘Sexy’: ‘I Don’t Think I’m Going For That’


By Corey Atad.

Sure, Idris Elba may have one of the more seductive voices in Hollywood but his next project needs to be appropriate for the whole family.

In an interview with Screen Rant, the actor remained tight-lipped about his role as Knuckles in the upcoming sequel “Sonic the Hedgehog 2”.

Asked if he will be bringing some of his real-life sex appeal to the voice role, Elba said, “Honestly, I cannot say. Contractually, I cannot say anything. But I wouldn’t say he was sexy. I don’t think I’m going for that. That’s for sure.”

On Twitter, though, fans weren’t so convinced that Elba’s performance as Knuckles won’t still be alluring.

While details about the sequel remain under wraps, it is expected that Knuckles will follow a similar path as in the video game series, starting out as a minor antagonist to Sonic, but eventually teaming up with him to take down Dr. Robotnik.

“Sonic the Hedgehog 2” is scheduled for release on April 8, 2022.
