Idris Elba Joins Jessica Chastain in in Aaron Sorkin's 'Molly's Game'

Idris Elba is set to join the cast of the Aaron Sorkin-directed flick Molly’s Game.

The 43-year-old actor will co-star alongside Jessica Chastain, who plays main character Molly Bloom.

“The casting of Jessica and Idris in the two lead roles is any filmmaker’s dream come true. They’re two of the greatest actors of their generation, paired for the first time, and their chemistry will be electric,” Aaron said in an announcement.

Molly’s Game, based on the memoir of the same name, is about a world-class skier who decides to operate a major player, high-stakes poker game when she fails to qualify for the Olympics.
