Idris Elba is one of the most underrated actors of his generation, and thankfully for us, people are finally starting to realize his talent and give him bigger roles. After starring on the TV show 'Luther' for a couple of seasons, Elba has his fist chance at headlining a major blockbuster with the upcoming 'Pacific Rim'.

Idris was recently interviewed about his involvement with 'Luther', and he revealed that he tends to stay pretty involved in the story as a producer. He explained, "I don't tend to get involved in who we hire as actors. My imprint as a producer is... fighting for what we think is better for the drama. I'm not hands-on, but my opinion matters. If I get to a set and the script doesn't feel right, I can say so. "
 
However, he does add that he prefers TV to film, saying, "It's where I cut my teeth. Film is much slower and a waste of money." Let's hope he didn't really mean that, because 'Pacific Rim' comes out in two weeks and there's a lot riding in the rumored $200 million production.

In addition to starring in Luther and the upcoming 'Pacific Rim' [releasing July 12th], Elba's other high-profile roles coming up include returning as Heimdall in 'Thor: Dark World' and then playing Nelson Mandela in Oscar bait 'Mandela: The Long Walk To Freedom'.
