Idris Elba on Fighting The Rock in ‘Hobbs and Shaw’ and the Best Advice He’s Ever Received

Is there anything Idris Elba can’t do? Whether it’s acting, directing, writing, creating his own TV series, training to become a professional kickboxer (he won his only pro fight on a Round 1 TKO), designing his own fashion line, or working as a pro DJ, Elba’s done a little bit of everything through his Hollywood career.

Now, on his next project, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, Elba will take on the role of a villain—but not just any run-of-the-mill bad guy. This time, Elba will be playing Brixton Lore, a “super-powered”, genetically-enhanced, rogue MI6 agent turned mercenary, or as he calls himself in the trailer, “black Superman.” In the film, Elba has to face off against two of the most well-known action stars in the world: Dwayne Read the rest

Seal of Approval: Kumail Nanjiani on Conan’s Inspiring Podcast, Classic Films, and His New Kicks

Seal of Approval: Kumail Nanjiani on Conan’s Inspiring Podcast, Classic Films, and His New Kicks

Kumail Nanjiani, the star of the new movie Stuber, discusses a comedy podcast, a pair of purple kicks, a not-boring classic film, and his other recent obsessions.

Film

A cinematographer suggested I watch The Conformist, about a Mussolini operative out to assassinate a professor. I’m not as well-versed in the visual elements of moviemaking as I am in the writing, and the film was an education. It was stunning and not at all boring, like some classics.

Podcast

I’ve been listening to Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend. On it, Conan goes deeper with guests than he does on TV, and you see a different side of him—like how he’s more insecure than you might imagine, which I find inspiring to hear. The Lisa Kudrow episode was especially good.

The crew spent a few weeks in Jamaica working on the film before moving to other locations—the movie will also be shooting in Norway, Italy, and London—and these scenes show off some of the early parts of the film. While Daniel Craig sustained an ankle injury while shooting in Jamaica, the movie production didn’t need to be delayed and within a couple weeks he was already back in the gym training while still in his walking boot.

‘Fast & Furious 9’: John Cena's In, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's Out?

The Fast & Furious franchise is about to get another major injection of muscle: John Cena is officially in the cast of Fast & Furious 9, joining Vin Diesel and company for their next mission, according to Deadline. Universal officially confirmed to the outlet that Cena will be in the cast, which comes months after Diesel teased his addition on Instagram.

That also means Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is out. Deadline reports that Johnson “will not be in Fast & Furious 9.” Johnson’s absence doesn’t mean he’s done with the series, though. Johnson is starring in the first-ever Fast series spinoff, Hobbs and Shaw, this summer with Jason Statham, and that will likely become a franchise itself if it performs well at the box office.

The addition of Cena will … Read the rest
