Idris Elba is catching fire for recent comments he made. The 45-year old star feels any actor should be able to play a gay character. Disney cast its first gay character for the film "Jungle Cruise," but some are concerned that the actor playing the role, Jack Whitehall, isn't gay. The LGBTQ community has been vocal about their lack of opportunities in film and tv. Elba feels like "You don’t necessarily have to be gay to play a gay character." What do you think?
