Make This Happen: Idris Elba Wants To Be On “Girls”

Make This Happen: Idris Elba Wants To Be On "Girls"

You guys! Idris Elba — star of  ”Luther,” “Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom,” and, of course, “The Wire” — is going to be on “Girls”! I mean, I’m assuming he is, because he ASKED TO BE and when Idris Elba ASKS to appear on your show, you say YES. You move heaven and earth to make that request a reality. So basically, Idris just asking – even via Twitter (as he did this morning in a tweet to Lena Dunham) — makes it so. It’s a space/time continuum thing. (Also, Lena and her cowriter both seemed game. Because they’re not stupid and they have eyes.) You heard it here: Idris Elba is going to be on “Girls”! (We will keep you posted on when this is actually confirmed in the form of an official announcement. But feel free to start celebrating now.) [Twitter]

Idris Elba is full of surprises. The British actor was so convincing On “The Wire” as Stringer Bell, the Baltimore drug kingpin in business school, that the first time I heard him talk out of character, I was shocked to discover that he is very, very British. And apparently, Idris has his eye on an iconic British role. Bond, James Bond. “It’s a rumor,” he said on NPR this week. “My dad and I were talking about this the other day. I would do it, but I don’t want to be called the first black James Bond. Do you understand what I ‘m saying? Sean Connery wasn’t the Scottish James Bond and Daniel Craig wasn’t the blue-eyed James Bond. So if I played him, I don’t want to be called the black James Bond.” Fair enough.
