Is Idris Elba making a play for a cameo on Girls? The British hunk has implied not-so-subtly that he would love to guest star on the raunchy HBO comedy.

Elba, who recently shared the couch on U.K.'s The Graham Norton Show with Girls creator Lena Dunham, tweeted the wunderkind with a tempting offer. "@lenadunham, Very funny woman. Can I come do a scene on your show? I selfies!"

Dunham wasted no time taking the Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom actor up on his offer. "You are a pure pleasure. Honored to share the couch with you. #selfiesforever," she tweeted.

Let's hope this idea actually materializes into reality. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
