In-Flight Entertainment: Idris Elba: King of Speed!

Calling all Idris Elba fans!!!  More fabulous in-flight entertainment!

TV shows and movies are fabulous in-flight entertainment.  We have to admit, here at we are fans of actor Idris Elba.  We’ve enjoyed his work on movies like No Good Deed, Pacific Rim, Takers (one of my favorites), Mandela Long Walk to Freedom and Beasts of No Nation.  We can’t forget his award winning work as detective John Luther in the popular BBC America series “Luther.”  I’m anxiously awaiting his latest work in the action packed thriller “Bastille Day.”

Ever wondered what he loves to do when he’s not shooting an award winning movie or TV show?  We know he’s loves music and is an accomplished DJ, but did you also know he loves cars?  BBC America knew and there’s a fabulous new show featuring Idris Elba that showcases his love of fast cars.  “Idris Elba:  King of Speed” is a fun, fast look at his love of cars, racing and speed.

The 3 episode series follows Idris as he takes us to the #1 shop for custom low riders, learns the Japanese art of drifting and drives a vintage Ford V8.  The series also tags along as he gets a rally driving lesson from Britain’s top girl racer Louise Cook.

Take a sneak peak in this teaser from episode 2…

You had us with your accent…lol
