Idris Elba: He’s Even More Handsome Than You Thought

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.
