    Idris Elba Taking Over Tom Cruise's Role In 'Pacific Rim'

    So, what was that tweet all about? At the end of May, Idris Elba took to his Twitter and cryptically tweeted, “Having one of the biggest meetings of my professional life today…meeting a very controversial director for a very controversial part.” He followed that up with, “I wish I could tell you mor...

    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...

    Idris Elba, Sean Harris & Kate Dickie Join The Cast Of Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus'
