Still from "Luther" Starring Idris Elba
BBC America Still from "Luther" Starring Idris Elba

I think this just might be the very first time I've watched/heard him talk about playing the part... although he doesn't reveal a lot.

They spend more time talking about a character he played in the past - Stringer Bell, from The Wire. I'm sure he'd love to shake that off sooner than later.
