The Wire

Idris Elba may be "too street" for James Bond right now, but at least the streets are watching. The U.K. born actor/DJ celebrates his birthday today (Sept. 6), and we look back at an illustrious, still ascending career. 

He will always be remembered for his role as Stringer Bell on HBO’s The Wire, where he indelibly brought to life the tragedy and promise of real life Baltimore drug lords (Stringer Reed and Roland Bell), and businessman Kenneth A. Jackson.
