Elba lands another crime show role
The Wire star Idris Elba is heading back to TV in another crime drama - he's signed up for a new cop show.
The actor, who played drug lord Stringer Bell in the hit U.S. series, is to play the lead role in BBC police show Luther.
The six-part programme aims to turn the detective genre around by revealing the murder's identity at the beginning of each episode.
Filming is due to begin in the autumn and the show is slated to air next year (10).
