Idris Elba is featured in the June 2012 issue of British GQ!

In the issue Idris talks playing Nelson Mandela in the biopic Long Walk to Freedom:

“That is a lot of responsibility.  It’s like being asked to play Jesus.”

He also talks film vs. TV roles:

“Film is the ultimate goal in an actor’s career.  I mean, I still love TV.  The last two years feel like a reinvention of my career.  I’m not a household name, by any stretch.  In some countries no one knows who Idris Elba is.”

He also talks plays James Bond:

“It’s one of the most coveted roles in film.  Anyone would dream of it.  I’d be honored but I don’t think it will actually happen.  I’m just happy with the idea of being associated with it.”

His new film Prometheus releases June 6.
