No, I didn't get the opportunity myself. Wouldn't that have been the day.
I found a great interview with the actor Idris Elba on an NPR Fresh Air podcast.
About the first half of the interview focuses on his new TV role on the show The Office (US edition). The rest of the interview explores his role as Stringer Bell on my fav show The Wire and his music career.
Check out the interview. There's also a link to a profile on the actor in the Guardian, dated March 2008.
