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.
