JMFC. How adorable is he? Is there even an upper limit? I think perhaps not.
Idris Elba reveals the story behind the name of his production company ‘Green Door’ [x]
I watched the video, and… holy fuck. I’ve never heard him speak in his native accent before (does he have it in Luther?), and………. a;lsdjkfl;aksjdlfkjsdlfja;sdfj
Um. I need to write all the Idris Elba-based porn now. (I… I meant to write fic, I really did. But it came out “porn” and… let’s be honest, mostly that’s what I write.) Ces and I kicked around the idea of casting Idris as Bishop and making him Charles’s bodyguard somewhere, so there’s a thought. But I actually kind of want him to grab Brandon (from Shame) by the scruff of the neck and… if I think about this too hard, my brain may snap, and I have stuff to dooooooooo…
(Other thoughts include: Idris/Armando. Idris/Erik. Idris/Nick Fury. I don’t know, can we just cast him as T’Challa and make T’Challa really, really, really badass beyond the badassest of badassery? How about Idris!T’Challa/Angela Bassett!Storm? HOW ABOUT THAT, HUH. How about some kind of epic fanfiction based on The Crew? HOW ABOUT THAT.)
That tongue-swipe after he mentions the interracial relationship, what. Idris Elba you are such a sex troll.
And yes, I’ve seen the first series of Luther and he has pretty much this accent. Possibly a little bit up-class (or maybe he’s Michael Caine-ing it up here?). Pretty sure this is how he sounds in RocknRolla, anyway. The broadly Southern accent in the Prometheus trailer confuses me, though, because I know he can do American accents but that one sounded fake to me.
This is how much my brain went away after this video: I FORGOT HE’S IN PROMETHEUS
(I obviously didn’t forget about the Losers, because how could I, but…!)
OH GOD IS IT JUNE 8 YET, PLEASE CAN IT BE JUNE 8
