For grown women everywhere, Mr. Idris Elba revived that horrible habit of being attracted to bad boys. Elba’s role as the outrageously sexy corner/corner office guy, Stringer Bell, was memorable. Since his untimely departure from the show, Elba has been one busy man. 

Besides DJing and rapping, he’s also gotten behind (well, and in front of) the camera to direct a Mumford and Sons video called “Lover of the Light.” 

As far as acting, Elba has been in numerous movies including controversially (for some folks) playing in "Thor." Elba has won a Golden Globe for his title role in the detective series "Luther" and he was a fan favorite on "The Office."  

Rumor has it that Elba may be the next James Bond on screen.
