OH IDRIS ELBA, HOW WE LOVE THEE
Can we talk Idris Elba? OF COURSE WE CAN BECAUSE THAT’S ALL WE’RE THINKING ABOUT! For crying out loud, this man is everywhere and THANK HOLY JUSTIN BEEBUS THAT HE IS. If there is ONE reason to wake up in the morning, it’s to search the latest news on our favorite Brit...and by latest news, I mean work out photos ohhhkay???
Idris busted into our hearts as our favorite drug dealer, Stringer Bell, in The Wire. I know, I know, if you have to hear about The Wire one more GD time...but, for real, if we have any reason to be thankful to any middle aged white guy, David Simon gets all of our moments of gratitude because he brought Idris into our lives.
YOU DIDN’T EVEN KNOW he was played a gigolo in Ab Fab, did ya?? Know you know and thank god it’s on Netflix so you can watch it AGAIN.
Here is our dreamboatiest dreamboat in Luther, where he plays a pretty broken investigator who thinks serial killers are hot, though he never gets as naked as you want him to be. Sigh….
Let’s stare at him next to a fake tiger…
I WANT TO BE ALL OF THESE FOODS.
Are you, Idris?? ARE YOU???
Idris went through a bit of a midlife crisis after his dad passed (read this month’s Esquire cover story), which may explain his guest appearance in a Macklemore video, but he also created a few shows on Discovery where he learned to race a car, fly a plane, and fight. SO TYPICAL OF A MAN, but much hotter than your ex-husband, am I right??? Here he is in a plane, but really, you just want to watch this, you’re gonna need a cold shower.
IT’S TOO MUCH!
SERIOUSLY! I’LL MAKE YOU COFFEE, JUST DON’T MOVE! LIKE EVER.
Please go see this man in EVERYTHING he ever does so that Hollywood won’t ever take him away from us! WE LOVE YOU IDRIS!
