Midweek Mancandy: Idris Elba

"Luther" started its season three miniseries run on BBC America last night, so who else could we possibly feature as our Midweek Mancandy than the incredibly gorgeous and massively talented ...

Idris Elba!

Elba plays DCI John Luther, a volatile, dedicated and obsessive police detective on the BBC show "Luther." He is just downright intense in the role, and nobody else could play him like Elba can.

Elba was also in this summer's "Pacific Rim," playing Stacker Pentecost, the man in charge of the Jaeger program as the human race made its last attempt to defeat the kaiju invasion. He was your basic tough military man on the surface, but underneath there was a huge range of emotions, including a tender side. He was nothing short of fantastic in that movie.

Elba is also well-known for his roles on "The Wire" and in "Prometheus" and "Thor." Oh, and he's also known for being incredibly good-looking in addition to being an excellent actor. He's the perfect mix: He's incredibly talented, bringing depth to a variety of different interesting roles, and he's hot, too.

Idris Elba, we salute you!
