DCI John Luther as reflection of his personality is indeed used to demented, dark chaos.
However, even Idris Elba’s hero was having troublesome in the second and final part of Luther as to saying to the head of local crime family,
‘I’ve got a nutjob running around London eating people and I’ve got a dead kid.”
Given the combination of the child killer, the gangster, the cannibal, the psychic, along with Idris Elba’s career in Hollywood, he is yet to act in another episode in sometime in the future as he pursue his endless stream on being a killer on his tweed coat and Volvo.
Elba, on the other hand, had also made an impressive audition for the part of James Bond in which it consist of intelligent, unorthodox lawman who is prepared to demonstrate violence if necessary.
It is indeed not hard to see why he wouldn’t be the chosen one for the role for his personality, charisma, and acting skills is perfect for lawman in which he is most suitable in!
