The oh-so-handsome Idris Elba was on the hot seat earlier this week for the Chelsea Lately show.
The 41 year-old actor jokingly talked about how he’ll sit with his Luther castmates for one category and with his Mandela castmates for another during this year’s Golden Globe Awards. He also shared how he’s working on a tribute album to the late and former South African president:
When I was in South Africa, I fell in love with the musicianship out there. I went back and recorded this album. I wanted to express how it felt to play Nelson Mandela and put it into some musical things, something I’m calling “character music.” And I’m nearly finished with the album. It’s dope. It’s good.
A few more seconds into the interview, Elba and Handler talked about how Idris used to work as the door man at a comedy club she used to perform at. Watch how that conversation turned out up top! LOL
The 2014 Golden Globe Awards will air live on Sunday, January 12th at 8PM EST/5PM PST on NBC.
