Idris Elba's Reddit AMA provided a few key facts about Elba's career. He would totally play James Bond, and he loves Mary Poppins, but perhaps most importantly, it added a crucial detail to the ever-expanding web that is The Nicolas Cage Mythos. Elba talked about an odd incident that occurred while the two were shooting Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance together in Romania in 2010.

Neither Luther nor Idris Elba have won an Emmy yet. At the risk of sounding hyperbolic, that is a crime greater than any the show addressed during its three-season run. Elba picked up a Golden Globe in 2012 for it, but considering the most recent season of Luther is the last, the time is now to reward the actor and the show.
For three seasons, Elba so fully inhabited Luther's gray car coat that we're not really sure where the character began and where Elba ended, which is really worrisome, because that's also what we thought about his portrayal of Baltimore drug lord Stringer Bell in The Wire.
The scene above is gripping, unsettling and must have been taxing to film. In short, it's everything great TV is supposed to be, and the perfect example of why Luther, showrunner Neil Cross and Elba all deserve to walk home with Emmys on Monday night.

In an emotional judgment call, two of Nelson Mandela's daughters decided that the London premiere of the Mandela biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom would continue, despite the former South African president's death Thursday at the age of 95.
Zenani and Zindzi Mandela attended the premiere and learned of their father's death during the screening. Though the pair left the Odeon Leicester Square theater, they asked that the film play to the end uninterrupted, according to a statement from the Nelson Mandela Foundation.
Zindzi Mandela had spoken about her father's health on the film's red carpet, saying that he was "fine."
"He's just a typical 95-year-old who is frail," she added.
