Tak­ing care of busi­ness

Esquire (UK) - - Contents -

Ac­tor, mu­si­cian, di­rec­tor, DJ and busi­ness­man: Idris Elba is a man with big plans

In the 15 years since his break­through in The Wire, he has starred in block­busters and art house films, won a Golden Globe, re­leased two al­bums, founded a pro­duc­tion house, re­ceived an OBE, launched a cloth­ing la­bel and made his di­rect­ing de­but. Now he’s back with the fifth se­ries of the BBC’s hit de­tec­tive show, Luther. But that’s just for starters. There’s also an ac­tion movie, more TV, and even a cocktail bar in Lon­don. As he poses for his third Esquire cover, we ask: what makes Idris Elba run?
