Is Idris Elba Just Another Celebrity DJ?

Before Idris Elba became a house hold name, Idris was once a DJ.  Now the side-hustle has merged into what you call the main hustle.

He has managed to release music inspired by his acting gigs, including 2014’s Idris Elba Presents Mi Mandela and 2015’s Murdah Loves John (The John Luther Character Album).

Even so, he has to battle the misconception that he’s just another celebrity DJ who collects a huge paycheck by walking onto a stage and simply hitting the play button on a laptop. “People are going to make up their own minds when they see me spin,” he says. “They’ll say, ‘Oh, wow. He’s not really just some dude up there hitting one key. He’s made some songs and he’s contributed.'”

His "obsession" started way back when, back when he was still a child in his parents living room.  As he grew older, Elba  worked the turntables at weddings and christenings and other events around his native London. 

Could Cillian Murphy Be the Next James Bond?


What ever happens in the month or two, the next James Bond movie is still happening with Daniel Craig.    Of course, it seems quite likely that Craig will be done after this next film, the question of course is who will be the next James Bond. 

Among many names thrown into the mix is Cillian Murphy, Tom Hiddleston, Richard Madden and Idris Elba .

Lets consider the time that it took to get Daniel Craig to commit to playing James Bond one more time, it seems likely this will be his last go-round as the super spy, though the film has not been announced to be his last.

If he hasn't already told producers this is his last, then assume we'll all go through the "will he, won't he" one more time as Eon Productions tries to get him to do one more movie, before the producers even consider looking elsewhere.

When Will Tom Hardy Return to As James Delaney in 'Taboo' ?

Even though it's now been over two years since Tom Hardy's BBC drama Taboo debuted, fans have been anxiously awaiting a second season.
 
Created by Tom and his father Chips Hardy, alongside writer Steven Knight, the series got a green light for a second season back in March 2017 so the question is, what's taken it so long?
 
The filming on season  two were expected to begin in early 2018.  Of course 2018 came and went with Hardy busy schedules apparently holding up more Taboo.
 
We finally got an update in early 2019, but it wasn't exactly great news:  Tom revealed that the writing on the new series was "almost" finished, but filming wouldn't begin until late 2019 or even possibly early 2020.
 
So don't expect new Taboo until next year.

Sam Smith Had To Grab His Balls In Front of Tom Hardy


Sam Smith was performing his James Bond theme The Writing’s On The Wall at the awards ceremony when he spotted Hardy in the audience, a moment which he described as ‘painful’.

Even though the singer has conformed that he is in a relationship with Brandon Flynn, but previously admitted that he (and everyone else) has had a crush on Hollywood hunk Tom last year.

He said: ‘When I sing that, it actually hurts. I’ve got to grab my balls to sing it.’

 He continued: ‘When you’re singing in front of Tom Hardy, it’s just not cool. I wanted to look sexy in front of him, and I didn’t.’ However, the night wasn’t all bad as the 25-year-old singer won an Oscar for his Bond song. That’s one way to try and impress your crush.
