All Hail Idris Elba, King Of The DILFs

View Photo Gallery

You may know Idris Elba for his work on The Wire. Or maybe you’re a fan of his musical side as DJ Driis. Did you catch him in Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom? Of course. He was great in that, and totally deserving of his Golden Globe nomination. But what about that Oscar snub? While these are all valid conversations to be had about the talented English actor, his extreme handsomeness should not be overlooked. And now that he has become a father for the second time, he’s headed to the top of our list of DILFs. That’s Dad I’d Like To F–k. Happy Friday!

Elba and girlfriend Naiyana Garth welcomed their son Winston Elba on Thursday, and the actor posted an adorable photo to Twitter proving how “truly amazing” fatherhood really is.

2014 Emmy Predictions: Best TV Movie/Miniseries Actor

8 April 2014 7:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

From Sherlock Holmes to JFK, the contenders in this category are quite the mixed bag, with Oscar nominees (or winners) Mark Ruffalo, Billy Bob Thornton, Christopher Plummer and Chiwetel Ejiofor all looking to score Emmy nods here. And will Idris Elba and Benedict Cumberbatch return to the fold after missing out on nominations last year for "Luther" and "Sherlock," respectively (Cumberbatch was nominated for "Parade's End" instead")? Either way they should all be thanking Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson for switching to the series category. Both definitely would have been nominated here otherwise. Below are predictions for best TV movie/miniseries actor from both Indiewire Awards Editor Peter Knegt and Assistant TV Editor Ben Travers. Check back as they might very well change 'em up between now and July 10th. Check out predictions in all the categories here. Ben's predictions: 1. Mark Ruffalo, The Normal Heart 2. Billy Bob Thornton, Fargo 3. Rob Lowe, »

Things we don't admit when watching brilliant TV shows

6 April 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Louisa Mellor Simon Brew 7 Apr 2014 - 06:55

Who’s that? What did she just say? Wait, he’s English? Here are the things we don’t admit when watching acclaimed TV shows…

Omission makes the world go round. Without the art of keeping things to ourselves, most social interactions would disintegrate within seconds. Too much soul-baring honesty would snap the taut bonds that keep us all from running screaming through the Toby Carvery of a Sunday lunchtime jabbing family members with corn-on-the-cob prongs. We’re a tightly wound, insular people, the British. It takes court injunctions and Jeremy Kyle to prise loose our secrets.

Every so often though, it does us good to share. It’s cathartic to confess, between friends, that we’re sometimes a little bit lacking or dim. In the spirit of honesty and self-improvement then, here are the things we’d rather not admit to »

Andy Serkis Says That The Jungle Book “Doesn’t Shy Away From Its Darkness”

28 March 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In the latest of many Hollywood toss-ups, following competing friends-with-benefits, Snow White and White House takeover movies, Warner Bros. and Disney are going head-to-head with different adaptations of Rudyard Kipling’s classic The Jungle Book.

Currently, Disney’s take definitely has the edge, with Jon Favreau locked in to direct and Idris Elba voicing the fearsome tiger Shere Khan. However, WB’s adaptation, which stalled for a time after director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu departed, is finally getting some traction now that Andy Serkis, the character actor behind Gollum in The Lord of The Rings and Caesar in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, has been signed to direct. The project will mark Serkis’s feature directorial debut, though he directed second unit on Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy, and he seems absolutely thrilled to have landed the gig.

There are some things that British men do best: making a pot of tea, playing dastardly villains and wearing the bejesus out of a tailored suit. I mean, “Hot damn, British men!” In honor of how gosh darn good these guys look all cleaned up, we’re ranking the best British men in suits.

Ranking the best British men in suits was not easy for us. It’s like choosing between your babies, but worse because you’re choosing between the hot men that you fantasize about having babies with. Every guy on this list is incredibly hot, unbelievably suave and looks fantastic in a suit. Ultimately, our ranking came down to how well the suit was tailored, how comfortable the man in question looked in the suit and how stylish the whole look was.

So, who looks better in a tailored suit? The long and lean »
