Goodbye Idris Elba, hello DJ Driis.
That’s right, Idris Elba is officially taking a break from Hollywood. The Luther actor told The Daily Mirror, a UK newspaper, that he’s taking a break from acting to focus on his other baby: music. According to Black America Web, he told them:
“This year I’m not going to work as an actor so I can concentrate on music. I do it from the heart, not for the money.”
Well great, good for him. But what about those who love to see him on the big and small screens? One one hand, you’ve got to respect that the man is going to use his fame and opportunities to do things that are important to him. But on the other hand, we like his look- excuse me, his acting.
If you’re not familiar with “DJ Driis,” you might avtually be in for a treat. He’s compiled mixtapes in the past, hosts others’ mixtapes and he, obviously, deejays. Right now, he’s in London doing a seven week residency at one of their popular clubs. He also directed Mumford & Sons’ “Love of the Light” video. Elba also made his own musical debut in his own video for “Private Garden” back in 2011.
So yes, his track record in the music industry has been pretty good and steady so we’ll see what he does next.
But don’t worry, according to IMDB, we might get to see him on the screen after-all: he has three movies in post-production that should hit the screen. So maybe he’s just not filming anything new – we can accept that. Maybe once he’s ready to get back to work, that James Bond role will be waiting for him.

I’m an equal opportunity ogler, so no matter what you look like, if you look fine to me, I’m going to ogle you. And not only that, I’ll share the fine-ness with all of you. So I was just watching Takers, and while most of the men in that film are gorgeous, I had to go down memory lane with Paul Walker. I’ve been low-key thinking this guy is hot since his Varsity Blues days with those piercing blue eyes, that boyish smile and those abs. And as his age has increased, he’s still managed to look uber-hot. We always like to change it up, so if there’s any eye candy you would like to see, let us know! Until then, enjoy Walker’s goods.
