About Idris Elba

  • Known For: Luther, The Wire, Pacific Rim

Idris Elba is unable to play characters that aren't mysterious. Even his performance as Nelson Mandela had shades of "...what's this dude up to?" and his star-making turns in acclaimed television series The Wire and Luther show are just minute indicators of his wide acting range, and he has sci-fi experience with Pacific Rim. Elba's ability to portray the most steely of emotions would be incredibly well suited for Stephen Strange, and there's nothing more strange than someone who does not let all his motivations be known.
