But he’s been one of those actors who has sort of flown under the radar for me. I liked him when I saw him, but then I didn’t see him for a while. So when I heard he might play the new Bond, I got excited. Maybe now I would or could get a steady diet of this actor.
Turns out, the rumors may or may not be true. Either way, I felt I didn’t want him to slip back under the radar with me, so I started looking for movies and shows where I might get a bit more.
Netflix has Luther. A police procedural with Elba in the starring role.
Gave it a try. I like it a lot and am going to be sticking with it.
For the record I hated the Dark Tower movie they made a while back. The only thing I did like about it was Idris Elba as the gunslinger.
He’s been doing great stuff for a long time and now it seems I finally have the good sense to pay attention.
