2011 Emmy Nominees: Meet the Scene Stealers

From Jon Hamm and Kristen Wiig to Melissa McCarthy, TV's most talented stars show off their big-screen talents

IDRIS ELBA

THOR
Elba's raw passion and intensity earned him two Emmy nods in a single year: as the titular detective in BBC's Luther (actor in a miniseries or movie) and as Laura Linney's lover Lenny in The Big C (best guest actor). No surprise then that the British actor combines the fierceness of Luther and the sex appeal of Lenny to play swoon-worthy Norse deity Heimdall in Thor.
