Esquire has confirmed what we’ve known for quite some time:Â Idris Elba isÂ the future of Hollywood.
The publication’s September issue highlights Tinseltown’s next generation of bright stars that includesÂ the 39-year-old London native, as well asÂ Taylor Kitsch, Armie Hammer, Aaron Paul, Garrett Hedlund and Aaron Johnson.
“I think I’m being considered as an international actor,” Elba said. “Which is great because I started off in England and I have an audience there and now I have an audience in The States. And The States was always my goal, Hollywood was always my goal. And I came and I conquered.”
