Idris Elba's appearance on 'Friday Night with Jonathan Ross' again confirms the connection between the Wire and football, and therefore the need for footballonthewire.com! Elba has his left foot in plaster after tearing a muscle during a good old-fashioned kick-around.
The Ross interview with Elba was not that good but we did get to see a preview of Elba in the new British crime series called 'Luther'. To be honest, it did not seem great, but it would be unfair to judge the series from the 30 second clip. The series is to be broadcast on BBC1 in May.
