Can we please start a campaign to make Idris Elba the next James Bond? Please!? How do we do this? And don’t say “Who?” (cue my face-palm) In case you’ve been living under a rock, allow me to educate you…
So, there’s that.
Aside from starring on some of the hottest shows on TV (The Wire, Luther, The Office, The Big C) and huge films (Portraying Nelson Mandela in “Mandela”, Heimdall in “Thor”, “Pacific Rim”, “Prometheus”) he is also a music producer and singer. Elba co-produced and performed on Jay-Z’s 2007 album American Gangster and has released 3 EPs of his own music, as DRIIS.
Get the picture. This man is basically on fire and it’s not snuffing out any time soon. If you’re into drama, please go check out his show LUTHER on BBC. Also avail on Netflix.
