Star Trek Beyond Casting: Idris Elba Officially Joins Cast


It’s been speculating for quite some time that Idris Elba would be joining the cast of Star Trek Beyond. The announcement was done in a way that’s a little unusual – at the end of a video promoting a Star Trek charity movement.

The announcement was as simple as Idris walking into the shot and Chris Pine saying “Idris, glad you could join us.”

The video is a promotion for a charity which offers fans a chance to win a walk-on role for a donation of $10 or more.
