Ladies and gentleman, I’d like us all to take a few moments out of our busy day to appreciate Idris Elba.
The British actor has been on many of our radars since he played Russell “Stringer” Bell on The Wire, but 2013 really feels like his year. He’s got his stint on the BCC One show Luther going on, he reprised his role in Thor: The Dark World and he played Nelson Mandela is the very powerful film, Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom.
I recently saw the latter film and realized just how much I love Idris.
Not only is he handsome and talented, but he’s also one of the most fun people to watch interviews of. Don’t believe me? Watch this and try not to get lost in the black hole of Idris Elba YouTube videos. Also, he’s a rapper. He’s basically a modern day renaissance man.
So here’s an idea for your holiday week: 1) launch the gallery and appreciate just how perfect Idris looks as Nelson Mandela. 2) Watch the trailer for Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom below. And 3) Go buy tickets to the movie to see Idris in action. You will not be disappointed. And with that, excuse me as I disappear in to the black hole of Idris videos.
