He's appeared in a Marvel franchise, won a Golden Globe for his role on "Luther" and has changed the game with Netflix's "Beasts of No Nation," but Idris Elba still wanted to add something a little more out of the ordinary to his resume.

The Huffington Post sat down with Elba to discuss his role in the project, as well as his gamer mentality.
