Elba is so good in his dramatic roles that we sometimes forget he is a really funny guy. While many people immediately think of his time as Stringer Bell on The Wire or in the title role on Luther, his performance as Charles Miner in The Office is highly underrated.
In Turn Up Charlie, Elba plays a struggling DJ who becomes the “manny” to his famous best friend’s problem child daughter, Gabby, played by Frankie Hervey. Piper Perabo (Covert Affairs) and JJ Feild (Turn: Washington’s Spies) co-star.
Idris Elba is also an executive producer on Turn Up Charlie, and as he revealed during his recent appearance on Saturday Night Live, he really was a DJ in New York in the early days of his acting career.
