Idris Elba
Found out he was British which to me was surprising with him having such a strong accent in real life. His character was so good adding a business aspect to the street life that usually isn’t portrayed in films or movies, Stringer Bell was a man that in some cases was too ahead of his time that the street life wasn’t ready for...purely brilliant
