Man Crush Wednesday: A Shirtless and Sweaty Idris Elba

Man Crush Wednesday: A Shirtless and Sweaty Idris Elba

More like man crush everyday!

Idris Elba has been giving fans a glimpse of his fitness routine via Instagram this month, and all we can say is that boxing sure is doing his body good. The Bastille Day star shared a photo of himself after a particularly grueling workout on Sunday, while flexing his bicep and chiseled abs, with the caption: “Cutting weight, two days before first fight, mind in the right place. Fear NO guy.” He’s also posted a few videos while in the boxing ring — and it’s been reported that this isn’t in preparation for a new role.Idris Elba

The 43-year-old actor has been getting into fighting shape for a new docu-series where he will transform into a professional kickboxer.  According to Deadline:

“The actor and producer is buffing up for Idris Elba: Fighter, a limited series that will extend the Golden Globe winner and Emmy nominee’s relationship with Discovery Networks International following their collaboration on racing program No Limits. The three-part hour-long factual will see Elba undertake the physically and mentally demanding task of training to become a professional kickboxer — ultimately competing against a seasoned brawler in a no-holds-barred bout.”

“It has been a lifelong ambition of mine to fight professionally,” said the Golden Globe and SAG Award winner. “Entering the ring to further test myself as a human being is a challenge I have been looking to take on for quite some time.”

The critics are going gaga over this one. And the box office predictions look very promising. They’re saying it will be the next rom-com hit since The Other Woman. 🙂
