Ben Kingsley's noble quest to improve every movie continues.

6794397739_e17e8a67c4_b The new Jungle Book movie may be live action, but the animals still need a fair amount of voice acting, and they’ve added Ben Kingsley to the cast! Kingsley will voice Bagheera in the new adaptation. Well that’s exciting news! bagheera Kingsley joins Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson, and Lupita Nyong’o in a cast that should make this new, Jon Favreau-helmed adaptation a lot more memorable than the last live action one.
