I heard some industry folks at TIFF sh*t-talking Netflix for allegedly overpaying for Cary Fukunaga’s Beasts of No Nation, Netflix’s first original feature film. They were of the opinion that Netflix will keep overpaying for movies and go bust, but just a few years ago TV executives were saying the same thing, and now look where we are. Full Story

As mentioned several weeks before the start of TIFF, the Beasts Of No Nation carpet was the one big ask I put to our producers at etalk. The request was granted. On Sunday night I was in first position at the premiere. This was the 5th or 6th time I’ve interviewed Idris. Did I ever tell you that I once interviewed him and Charlie Hunnam together? Me, in a small room with Idris and Charlie. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

One of the bigger stories dominating headlines yesterday was the Idris Elba being “too street” to play Bond situation after new James Bond author Anthony Horowitz posited that Idris wasn’t “suave” enough for the role because, I don’t know, he’s a gangster, or something.  Read Full Intro

How’s this for a pick me up? The new cover of Variety featuring… Cary Fukunaga and Idris Elba. And the good news is that we’re about to see a lot more of them. Cary is the director of Beasts Of No Nation. Idris is one of the stars. They’re taking the film on the festival circuit before it premieres on Netflix in October and then makes a run at Oscar. Full Story

After #BackToHogwarts, Idris Elba is currently the biggest trending topic on Twitter at post time. It’s because Anthony Horowitz who wrote the new Bond book, Trigger Mortis, has offered his opinion to the Daily Mail on whether or not Idris Elba would be a good James Bond: “Idris Elba is a terrific actor, but I can think of other black actors who would do it better. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Sarah sent me an update last night on TIFF voting. As posted yesterday – click here for a refresher – she’s coming to Toronto for TIFF and we’re asking you to set her schedule: what films should she see/review?

Needed this on a sh-tty day… Idris Elba covers Maxim. And they point out that he probably won’t be the next James Bond – right now it’s looking like it could be Damian Lewis because…I don’t know why. I don’t know why anyone wouldn’t think Idris Elba wouldn’t be a perfect Bond. Full Story

It’s a good day already. New Idris Elba photos! He was at LAX yesterday. And while I know I don’t need to give you any more information than that because you’ll just be looking at the photos anyway, there’s more. He’s heading to Glastonbury so we should get some new shots of him there. Full Story

First… Please enjoy these photos of Idris Elba eating a donut. There are, like, 3 people in the entire world who can eat a donut and still manage to look attractive. He would be one of them. Next… Simon Pegg is co-writing the next Star Trek movie. He was asked at CinemaCon yesterday about his progress…and whether or not the rumours were true that Idris would be joining the cast. Full Story

After that last post I thought you might want a palate cleanser? Idris Elba is in Cannes for MIPTV to promote Mandela, My Dad, and Me. The perfectly fitted red shirt. Those pants. His kicks. The grey in his beard… I mean I don’t know what else you want me to say about this. I feel like I should just get out of your way. Full Story
