Salacious Randomness

Share it Please

So I was attempting to come up with a name for this post and I kept drawing a blank.

I want to start doing a post of sexy men and women (actors, models, singers..etc ) that I think (or anyone else for that matter) are HAWT!
I'm winding down on my review list and I need something to fill in the lonely days on my blog…IDK, maybe I’ll keep the post as is Salacious Randomness…what do you think? Like the name? Yay/Nay? Feel free to comment and suggest a name or someone you would like to see, I’m open…

So let’s get it going.
My first stalk. I mean the first person I want to post is actor/director Idris Elba. I discovered this chocolate male goodness while watching The Wire, which by the way was one of the best dang on shows on HBO...I miss it.
I was hooked from there..Idris is an amazing actor and has a body you would want to eat off of…literally *weg*. He’s all over my Facebook page. I’m stalking (have got to find a new word) his fan page and man...let me tell you..Whew! Hotness!!!!

Mini Biography
Idrissa Akuna "Idris" Elba (born 6 September 1972) is a British television, theatre, and film actor who has starred in both British and American productions. Elba grew up in Canning Town, East London. One of his first acting roles was in the soap opera Family Affairs. He has worked in a variety of TV roles including Ultraviolet and The Inspector Lynley Mysteries. He is known for playing [[Russell "Stringer" Bell]], a Baltimore druglord and aspiring businessman, in HBO's critically acclaimed show The Wire. Elba is a DJ under the moniker DJ Big Driis / Big Driis the Londoner, and a hip-hop soul recording artist.

In 2009, Elba appeared on a six-episode arc of the American sitcom The Office, playing Charles Miner, Michael Scott's new boss. In 2010, he appeared in the action film The Losers in the role of Roque, the second-in-command of a black-ops team. The same year, he appeared in the thriller Takers. Elba plays the title role of Detective John Luther in the BBC television show Luther that aired from 4 May 2010 on BBC One, which has finished its second series.

Early life
Elba, an only child, was born Idrissa Akuna Elba, and shortened his first name at school in Canning Town, where he first became involved in acting. His father is Sierra Leonean and his mother is Ghanaian. Elba grew up in East Ham, and began helping an uncle with his wedding-DJ business in 1986, and within a year he had started his own DJ company with some friends. Elba left school in 1988 and won a place in the National Youth Music Theatre—thanks to a £1,500 Prince’s Trust grant – but then ended up having to do everything from tire-fitting to cold-call advertising sales to pay the rent between roles in Crimewatch murder reconstructions. Elba was working in nightclubs under the DJ nickname Big Driis in 1991, but began auditioning for television parts in his early twenties. After a stint in the National Youth Music Theatre, Elba worked the night shift at a Ford factory in Dagenham, London in 1989 and '90. He started his acting career while in high school with encouragement from his drama teacher.
