The Many Faces Of Idris Elba

Editor, Europe; Rotterdam, The Netherlands (@ardvark23)
For the last few weeks, one of the most discussed actors was Idris Elba, and not because of a new film coming out. Instead, we got a typical Internet lynchmob running after someone who made a James Bond-related comment which was taken out of context, and quite possibly deliberately misconstrued as well. Matt Brown wrote a pretty good article about some of the racial aspects of the whole thing.

Be that as it may, this whole discussion allowed us all to talk a lot about Idris Elba, which is not a bad thing at all, for he is a great actor and eminently watchable. The man is a walking mountain of charisma, when necessary.

So once again I'm going to use eleven pictures of one of my favourite thespians to make a quiz. Click through the images, and guess which movies or shows they're from. No competition, no prizes, just for fun, try to see how far you get without using IMDb!

And I'll post the answers next Thursday, or earlier if someone gets all eleven of them right.

Michele "Izzy" Galgana, Kurt Halfyard and Shelagh Rowan-Legg contributed to this story.

And here he is! This picture doesn't count yet for the quiz (it's just a glamorous red carpet shot), but all others do. So please browse through the gallery: click on the edge of the picture to get the next one, and see how many of them all you can identify!
