Idris Elba says being in Knuckles series ‘surreal’ after playing Sonic as a boy

British actor Idris Elba has said it is “surreal” to star in the animated series Knuckles as he used to play Sonic The Hedgehog as a child. The forthcoming series follows the red echidna – or spiny anteater – voiced by Elba as he teaches his warrior ways to Wade Whipple, played by The Mindy Project star Adam Pally. Paramount Pictures introduced audiences to Knuckles, voiced by Elba, 51, in Sonic The Hedgehog 2 as an ally of Doctor Robotnik, played by Jim Carrey.
