Idris Elba

Idris Elba caused an uproar — and more than a few people to blush — this past weekend when photos of him sporting a strategically-placed wire in his pants had us wondering if he was happy to see us. The photos revived our interest in all things British (naturally), so we're revisiting our list of favorite Black stars from across the pond.

The No Good Deed star tops the list with his dapper style and English brogue. And his smile? More intoxicating than a couple of pints.
