Idris here is one of that rare species – a Brit who becomes mega-famous in the US. His role in The Wire has made him a massive star, yet Mr Elba is still an East London boy at heart. Probably likes jellied eel and pie and mash with liquor… You know, all of that stuff. Formed almost entirely of fitness, Idris will hopefully be seen more regularly on our BIG screens. He played a Norse god in Kenny Branagh’s recent film Thor, which is good enough for me. All fitties should play gods, preferably with their shirts off.
