We already know that Idris Elba will be lending his distinctive vocals to Shere Khan in Jon Favreau’s **Jungle Book. But according to his former Wire co-star Dominic West, he’ll also be working on Pixar’s sequel to Finding Nemo, **Finding Dor****y.

Talking to Shortlist, West revealed that he’s in regular contact with several of the actors from the much-praised HBO series and that he and Elba are both performing voice duties on Dory. We hope they've met around a microphone once or twice in the course of their work, and exchanged some chat in flawless Baltimore accents.

Finding Dory, of course, will act as the follow-up to the company’s 2003 smash hit and explores Ellen DeGeneres’ character and her family. Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton are set as her parents, Charlie and Jenny, while Ty Burrell is comic whale sidekick Bailey. Oh! Oh! We speak Whale!

Albert Brooks will be back as the nervous Marlin alongside Vicki Lewis as Deb/Flo and, naturally, Pixar good luck charm John Ratzenberger. Andrew Stanton is directing again and the film is set for July 29, 2016 over here.

West is in this week’s really rather great Pride, while Elba will next be seen in psychological thriller No Good Deed, due on November 21.
