Idris Elba has a new gig.

No, it's not James Bond or a The Wire prequel. You might not know that apart from his acting chops, Elba moonlights as a DJ – and he's putting that talent to work for a pretty huge act.

Madonna has announced that Idris Elba will be opening for her at her Berlin show Tuesday night.

Madonna is currently in Europe on her Rebel Heart tour.

So far, Madonna has had different opening acts for many of her European shows. Last week, DJ Mary Mac opened for her. She's played with Diplo and Kaytranada. Rejjie Snow will open the Rebel Heart Tour dates in London, Manchester, Birmingham, and Glasgow.

Elba, who is also known for his role on Luther, will be returning in that capacity for a one night special, December 17th, on BBC America.
