DeAngelo Bert Davis says:

excellent . I’m a big Idris Elba fan. His brings a different unique energy
as the leading role in the BBC cop series Luther in the U.K. And as an
american, it fasinates me how English/British/Scottlanders can lose their
native accents when they do american based roles.

DeAngelo Bert Davis says:

We know the more traditional by-the-hollywood-book, will be casting Idris
Elba as the convict but clearly the more interesting dynamic would be
Benico Del Toro playing that role. Idris just did a film with Taraji Henson
being a nut. Another one back to back would be kind of stale and less
interesting. And if the directors and writers get this right, i think they
have the potential for A 1 block buster cross the board.
