IDRIS ELBA FOR GQ

Idris-Elba-GQ

Idris Elba’s star continues to rise, and 2013 is setting up to be his biggest year yet. The former star of the wire was recently tapped to play Nelson Mandela in the upcoming biopic Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom.  Without even shooting the first scene, the biopic about the South African revolutionary is already getting Oscar buzz.

” I’M NOT THE NEXT ANYTHING, I’m THE FIRST  ME. “

The role was originally reserved for Denzel Washington, but it is now up to Elba to capture the essence of a leader and a nation.  There has even been talks of Elba becoming the next James Bond.  That bridge is still yet to be crossed but for now, Elba will be appearing in the April issue of GQ UK.
