Summer of Idris
Richie Buxo/ Splash
Are you thanking me? Because you’re welcome. For Idris Elba.
I want you to look at this man. Look. At. This. Man. (And don’t think about his rap-singing.) This man was at Letterman yesterday promoting Luther Season 3. Do you watch Luther? I’m into Luther. Luther is my private, maybe a little pervy, OK a lot pervy, pleasure. Which is sick, considering it’s not supposed to be pervy in the least.
Luther Season 3 begins in England next week and in North America in September. But Elba is also doing double duty on the press circuit for Pacific Rim, opening on July 12. A new trailer is now online that features more of Elba’s fist-pumpy speech. He’s cancelling the apocalypse with his British accent and I want MORE.
Idris Elba + Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kikuchi kicking monster ass from the mind of Guillermo Del Toro. Can we go wrong?
