Idris Elba: I want funny roles
Idris Elba has said he would like to do more comedies.
The British actor wants more more light-hearted fare, following his gritty screen roles in The Wire and Luther.
"I haven't done any romantic comedies. I haven't done many comedies. I'd like to do some films skewed towards children," he told Vulture.
"I love kids and kids like me, so I'd like to do something a bit silly and in that world."
The Prometheus actor added: "I'm not getting offered roles by Disney at all. But I'd love to try something like that. I admire Dwayne Johnson, the Rock, and those type of films are such fun. My daughter loves those type of films."
Idris - who is preparing to play Nelson Mandela in biopic The Long Walk Home, before reprising his role as Heimdall in Thor 2 - also confirmed plans for a big-screen version of Luther.
"We're really preparing for the big-screen Luther. It's a goal. A very strong goal. It's not in stone yet, but it's something we definitely want to aim towards," he added.
