Hollywood can be a very interesting place, full of wonderful and talented people. However, over the years we have seen a number of talented stars slowly but surely fall from grace due to the acting roles they take. We have seen Oscar-winning stars becoming somewhat of a joke for taking on roles that they really should have avoided.
Idris Elba is a talented actor
 
One actor who is determined not to make the mistake of accepting the wrong roles is British actor Idris Elba, who has seen his stock rise since his fantastic performances in the hit show The Wire between 2002 and 2004. Idris played the role of Nelson Mandela in the movie Long Walk to Freedom and he has admitted that he has been offered some very poor roles since.
 
Elba was chatting to Details magazine, when he told them, "You know, I'd just played this iconic human being, and the scripts I got afterward were sort of ... disappointing ... Look, I know that I work a lot, but I'd prefer to wait sometimes because I don't want to just do rubbish films anymore or characters that anyone can play."

He added, "I've been that guy for a while, where people recognise me but they're not sure why, I'd done a lot of popcorn films, but the reinvention came when I decided to do more of the character-driven stuff that won't be seen by as many people. But it makes people start to realise, 'Wait a second, this guy is that guy.'"
 
While he has turned down a lot of awful roles, Idris Elba has still taken on a lot of work recently, with six movies currently in production and a further four films in development.
