Who is Idris Elba? He is a British actor, singer, rapper and producer who has starred in both British and American productions. His latest feature, Pacific Rim, came out this summer and is holding its own at the box office.
Last year the multi-talented Idris Elba directed and starred in the Mumford and Sons video, “Lover of the Light.” And you might have caught your first glimpse of him as Stringer Bell in HBO’s The Wire.
This week Irdis Elba turns 41, and Season 3 of his award-winning British crime drama show, Luther, premieres on the BBC. It’s a big week for a big, talented, handsome man.
“Just how handsome is he?” you may ask. Handsome. Pretty darn handsome. So handsome, in fact, that fans have him pegged as the next James Bond.
Go ahead and see for yourself.

Other Blue Shoes 7 of 11
It's hard to say because I've never seen blue and silver shoes like this before, but I can imagine them on other people who aren't as handsome as Idris Elba and they aren't working for me. On Idris? Working.
Leaning In And Waiting 8 of 11
Idris Elba is just leaning in to the microphone with his hands behind his back while politely (tenderly?) waiting with his eyebrows raised for someone to ask him a question. There's something really handsome about this.

Listen, it doesn't matter if he has a pocket square or not. This is just to show you that if he does have one, it doesn't take away from Idris Elba's handsomeness. In fact, it enhances it.
