This is turning out to be a big year for actor
Idris Elba. After getting his start on British television, the actor came to the attention of American audiences thanks to his breakout role as "Stringer" on HBO's The Wire. This year, Elba has continued to work on television, popping up on The Big C and starring in the BBC series Luther, but he has also made a big splash on the big screen, co-starring in The Losers and Takers, and filming scenes alongside soon-to-be-superstar Chris Hemsworth as the Norse god Heimdall in Thor. Elba was also recently added to the cast of the upcoming sequel to Ghost Rider starring Nicolas Cage. In his latest movie, director Thomas Ikimi's tense political action thriller Legacy, Elba takes center stage in a role that showcases the full range of his acting abilities.
Here's the official movie synopsis:
When a military effort to tackle a British-born Ukrainian arms dealer ends catastrophically, Black Ops soldier Malcolm Gray lands in a military hospital to overcome the torture he was subjected to. After nearly a year, Gray returns to Brooklyn and moves into a rundown apartment to reflect on the inconsistencies of the botched assignment. But Gray soon gets caught up in another impossible mission: to expose the corruption of a high-powered senator on the verge of announcing his presidential campaign.... A senator who also happens to be his brother.
