Everything’s coming up Idris Elba. “The Wire” actor has enjoyed numerous successes since the HBO show ended and it looks like there’s a role waiting for him if he wants to play with Guillermo Del Toro and giant robots for four months.

Most recently seen in Thor, Elba is also rumored to maybe work with Tarantino on Django Unchained. Though there have been zero confirmations regarding that. Details are vague right now about Pacific Rim. If he does join, he and Charlie Hunnam will help protect Earth from invading monsters. Tom Cruise might help out too. You saw the way he handled Rain Man‘s freakouts. Killing evil creatures from another world should be a walk in the park compared to that. (The Wrap)
