Idris Elba Will Train to Be a Kickboxer for TV, Which Is a Great Excuse to Look at This Photo of Shirtless Idris Elba


Fresh off his stint trying to be a rally driver, Idris Elba will now try to be a kickboxer: Discovery today announced it will partner with Elba for a second limited series, Idris Elba: Fighter, which will follow the Luther star as he attempts to fulfill his "lifelong ambition" of testing himself against professional brawlers. The series doesn't premiere until early 2017, but according to his Instagram, Elba has already started training. "Cutting weight, two days before first fight, mind in the right place," he says. "Fear NO guy." Being famous looks fun.
