Idris Elba swirls on Showtime


    Idris Elba has signed on for guest spot on Showtime’s upcoming dramedy, “The Big C.”

     
    According to The Hollywood Reporter, Idris will star in four episodes of the series as a painter who gets involved with the show’s main character, played by Laura Linney. It’s not clear whether Idris’ deal is for a recurring part or if his storyline will be short and sweet.


     
    “The Big C,” debuting August 16, centers on a suburban teacher who finds out that she has cancer.
     
    Idris is the second Black star to join the cast as Gabourey Sidibe has also inked a deal for a recurring guest spot on the show as one of Laura’s students.
