    Could Idris Elba Reprise His Role As 'Heimdall' in The Planned "Thor 2"?

    No . . . I'm really asking-- "Could he?"  Because though I consider myself a huge Idris Elba fan, I'm sorry to say that I have yet to watch the first Thor, so I don't know if Heimdall made it out in one piece.  And characters-of-color don't typically fare well in ...

    Creator Neil Cross Says He's Planning A 'Luther' Movie, Rewrote 'Pacific Rim' For Guillermo Del Toro

    You may or may not have seen any of "Luther," a crime procedural from the BBC that stars "The Wire" breakout Idris Elba as the titular cop, the kind of rule-eschewing maverick that cliches are made of. We wouldn't blame you for skipping it by, on BBC America or elsewhere, but...

    Comic-Con '11: 'Ghost Rider 2' Boasts It Will "Fuck Up Your Shit" Come February 2012

    'Spirit Of Vengeance' Co-Star Idris Elba Says He Would Love To Play 'Power Man' Character Luke CageBookended by a title card that read “fucking your shit up in 3D February 2012,” the "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance" footage showcased co-directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor's particularly physical style of filmmaking. Both filmmakers ran cameras simultaneously in certain shots, Taylor held on to moving motorcycles wearing only rollerblades as he filmed the action, and the two of them generally disregarded their personal safety as they shot some fairly epic action sequences. When asked whether they’ve ever been hurt, Neveldine knocked on...

    Idris Elba Sought For Guillermo Del Toro's 'Pacific Rim'

    Every now and then there is a story of an actor who has worked hard for years, slowly building acclaim on the back of strong performances matched by a just as tenacious work ethic. One of those people right now is Idris Elba. He had almost a decade of experience under his belt when he took on the role of Stringer Bell in the acclaimed HBO series "The Wire" and from there, things began to snowball until suddenly he seems to be everywhere. He's already got another hot television series on the other side of the ocean in "Luther," he played Heimdall in the box office hit "Thor" and he's currently working with Ridley Scott again (he was in "Americ...
