*Idris Elba says he’s taking a break from acting this year so he can focus his full attention on his other love, music.
The British actor, who DJs under the name Driis, is currently in the middle of a seven-week residency at a London nightclub.
He told Britain’s Daily Mirror, “This year I’m not going to work as an actor so I can concentrate on music. I do it from the heart, not for the money.”
The star of BBC America’s “Luther” has also directed a video for Grammy-winning folk rockers Mumford & Sons.
