By now you should have all heard of Zootropolis (aka Zootopia), the latest Disney animated movie, which stars the voices of Idris Elba, Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, and Shakira, among others.

Well, it turns out there's quite a big Easter egg in the form of who voices the character.

Can you guess who it is?

Officer McHorn is played by...Rhino from Gladiators!

Clever, right?

And it seems he's pretty pleased with the casting.
