Idris Elba

idris-elba_0

Watching a bit of music TV the other day I was surprised to see The Wire‘s Stringer Bell running around a field that was very much not Baltimore – looked like the Scottish highlands but turned out to be Pembrokeshire – and to a fairly dreary indie soundtrack, rather than some bad-boy hip hop.

A quick Google revealed the song to be the new Mumford and Sons track, with the video not only starring Elba but written and directed by him. Curious, I Googled further. Am I the last one to find out that like McNulty on The Wire, Elba is British, and a DJ/promoter to boot?!

Here’s the Facebook page of his music alias.

And check him presenting this excellent round up of club culture.

Can’t wait to buy the new issue of GQ…
