|All things are down to personal taste, personally I think he's gorgeous and talented, loved the wire, loved Luther, Not so keen on Beast of Nations but I don't like subtitles and couldn't get past the first 5 minutes.|
Always comes across as a decent and likable geezer, What's not to like about him?

|Lol I'm obviously blinded by lust but lots of actors seem to just play themselves, that's what gets them picked for parts.|
He's just one of the actors of the moment just as others have been before him but I think he'll last the course.
Not all actors go in for the methodology of Tom Hardy and Sean Penn etc.
Why are some people always voting to delete threads?

|Michael Caine has made a great deal of money|
by simply playing Michael Caine all his life.....
sometimes it's a good idea.
Idris Elba might just be the black MC?

|If the guy didn't have that deep baritone Darth-Vader type voice, I'm sure he would have been passed over for many roles. It's rare and gets attention. |
-- Don't forget the all-important cinematic classic, "Pacific Rim"

|OP, the issue here is definitely you and your style and taste...however your claim that Idris has no talent is incorrect...clearly you meant yourself.|

|I can't see how it's got anything to do with jealousy tbh some people just like to stir the pot.|
The Revenant more blimmin sub titles, I think it was well done.
I get it, some people do one good film, series whatever and suddenly they're popping up all over the show, not great if you don't rate them is it?

|It is all personal and for me, often a bit of the Emperor's new clothes. I can't see why Judi Dench is so revered, to my mind she is always Judi Dench playing someone, Helen Mirren is far better as is Jane Horrocks.|

Jane Horrocks was boss in the film Sunshine On Leith. Her Edinburgh accent was barry compared to some who try it. And that nicely ties in with the clip below from said film where Jane Horrocks does said accent.

And just for the hell of it (filmed in the sarry heid through in the weege). Bet the tune sticks in the heid.

|The poster child for someone playing the exact same character in every film has got to be -- Bruce Willis.|
Other than getting an Emmy and Golden Globe for "Moonlighting" TV series, most of the 'Awards' he's received through his career were for the negative - Golden Razzberry and that kind of thing. But his movies have made somewhere around $3 BILLION, so he's laughing all the way to the bank.

ahhh, the old "jealousy" accusation. It amazes me how quickly that get's brandished;
Well, considering you asked the question, in your opening post:
Am I just jealous because I'm short, pastey skinned and a little podgy?
It amazed me just how slowly it got brandished.
But I don't want a fight about it, I'm just saying...
Back on topic: I haven't watched anything with him in it, so I don't know my idris from my elba,
consequently, I don't really have an opinion on the chap.
I always thought Michael Caine was over-rated though.
In general, I think that ALL actors are just professional liars.
Why's everyone so tetchy?
What difference does it make where a poster's from?
There's only about 11 people left.
I'm grateful for any activity/opinions.
