Idris Elba, best known for his role as the gruff DCI John Luther in the BBC’s blockbuster TV series Luther, has seen his star climb steadily in recent years.

Aside from Luther, Elba’s most noteworthy performances were the wicked Brixton in Fast and Furious: Hobbs and Shaw and The Gunslinger, and Roland Deschain, in Stephen King’s epic fantasy novel series, The Dark Tower, which was adapted in 2017.

Elba is also expected to play the mercenary Bloodsport in the upcoming DC Comics adaptation of The Suicide Squad. Bloodsport is notorious for shooting Superman with a Kryptonite bullet, according to CBR.

Idris Elba was born in the East London borough of Hackney, according to IMDB. This could imply that he supports a London club such as West Ham United. Perhaps even Chelsea or Tottenham?

Idris Elba’s Favorite Football Club

Idris Elba supports Arsenal and verified this in a tweet in 2014 in response to a fan’s question. He appeared in an Adidas promotional video showcasing the new Arsenal kit for the 2019/20 season.

In the video, he appeared alongside current Arsenal stars Mesut Ozil and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, as well as club great Ian Wright.

According to one of the video’s lines, Elba may have played for Arsenal. Perhaps Mikel Arteta will make a last-minute bid for the actor.

Elba joins Star Wars actress Daisy Ridley, comedians Alan Davies and Matt Lucas, and vocal Arsenal supporter Piers Morgan in his support for the North London side.

He was also featured in a 2019 Four Four Two segment about notable Premier League fans.
