Benedict Cumberbatch is going WILD!

Well, he will in the Andy Serkis directed Jungle Book: Origins remake for Warner Bros., that is!

The Hobbit actor is the first lead to be officially signed on and he's going to voice Shere Khan!

Ya know, the evil tiger who opposes Mowgli in the film!

Totally sounds like a perfect fit for the Sherlock star's voice!

We wonder how he'll stack up to the Disney live-action version where Idris Elba will be voicing Shere Khan!

More importantly, does this mean he'll have to pose for pictures with tigers now, instead of penguins?

We're on board with that!

Benedict with cute animals wins any day of the week!
