Idris Elba is tired of talking about being James Bond. I’m tired of writing about it. But he covers the new issue if UK Esquire and, well, they talk about Bond. And he’s willing to. Sort of. Full Story

Second time I’ve used “Alpha” in a title today. This one doesn’t seem so… hilarious, does it? The Jungle Book is due out April 15th. And as Sarah has previously written, it looks amazing. Shere Khan, the imposing tiger boss, is voiced by Idris Elba Full Story

Idris Elba was photographed at Heathrow yesterday just 3 days after being awarded the Order of the British Empire. It was a big day for him and his family, obviously. And I love the colour selection for the occasion: Purple. It’s the colour of royalty, non? I mean, sh-t, there is nothing low class about this: Flying the East End flag at Buckingham Palace today!!! OBE Day. Full Story

Stephen King’s Gunslinger series—which spans books, short stories, and comic books—is finally coming to the big screen after a long and convoluted development process that saw it pass through JJ Abrams and Ron Howard, who wanted to do a film franchise/TV series combo to tell the hellishly overcomplicated story that Stephen King just kept writing because no one ever tells him enough. Full Story

It’s President’s Day in the United States so a lot of people have the day off. Where I live, it’s Family Day, a provincial holiday, so I don’t have the day off because our show services the entire country. I don’t actually have another day off until March 5th, including weekends, because I’m at a junket this weekend, and then it’s the Oscars the weekend after. Full Story

Idris Elba did not attend the Golden Globes this year. Two years ago, however, he was there with Naiyana Garth and she was pregnant with their son. Idris took his daughter Isan to the SAGs a couple of weeks ago. And I guess that tipped off the UK tabloids because now the Sun is reporting that he and Naiyana broke up. Full Story

And isn’t that the best of all fake computer movie bears? A new trailer for Jon Favreau’s update of The Jungle Book was released as part of the Super Bowl Trailer Apocalypse, and goddamn this movie looks gorgeous. Watch the new trailer and keep in mind two things: 1) The animals are not real, not even one, and 2) none of the locations are real, either. Full Story

He was also nominated, alongside his Beasts Of No Nation co-star Abraham Attah, for Best Ensemble. And while they were presenting the film together, Idris opened with the statement: “Welcome to diverse TV”. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

It’s been six days since the Oscar nominations were announced and every day criticism of the Academy’s pattern of exclusion continues to grow as more and more actors are speaking up and out against the lack of diversity represented on the supposed list of what was the best in film over the last year.  Read Full Intro

Idris Elba was Netflix’s best chance at an Oscar nomination for Beasts Of No Nation. But the Academy isn’t ready yet for Netflix to come and f-ck up the order of the film industry. He was left off the list of Best Supporting Actors. When Straight Outta Compton was called for Best Original Screenplay, I thought, OMG, Compton will make Best Picture! Nope. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

On the one hand, at the 2016 Golden Globes last night, it was all about The Revenant. These were the key words to the film: struggle, survival, the human spirit, and I think Leo threw “trust” in there too. Team Revenant was struggling, surviving, trusting, and embracing the human spirit.  Read Full Intro
