Latest Stringer news…

elba2

Idris Elba is in negotiations to star in a film version of the Vertigo/DC comic ‘The Losers’. His co-star would be Jeffrey Dean Morgan who you know from Watchmen but I know as the hot but troubled father from Supernatural.

On a side note, does Idris ever take a bad photo? I think we all know the answer to that question. Hell. No.

Speaking of The Wire…

elbaDid anyone watch last night’s The Office with Idris Elba(aka Stringer Bell)? He looked pretty much the same as he did on The Wire with his business suit, glasses and briefcase. I kept waiting for him to bitch slap Michael Scott though. Would have made the show a little more watchable for me.

I just haven’t been able to get into The Office this season. Maybe getting the chance to stare at Stringer Bell/Charles Minor for a half hour every week will change all that.

Watch the episode here at the internet’s gift to the unemployed and broke…Hulu.

Click here to be blown away by Idris Elba’s British accent as he talks to NPR’s Terry Gross about how he got the role of Stringer Bell. I can tell Terry is as big a fan of The Wire as I am.
