about the site
I first watched The Wire around 2009/2010, and while it's very much an ensemble show, Stringer was immediately one of my favorite characters. It's hard not to be fascinated by his character, and Idris's performance is just incredible, especially after you find out that he's British and that pitch-perfect Baltimore accent is completely fake.
Ever since I finished The Wire, I've found myself seeking out its actors in other works, and Idris has had some of the most mainstream success since the show ended. And I couldn't be happier, because he's an incredible actor, and I'll happily go see just about anything if he's in it. I haven't yet seen everything Idris is in, but he's always such a joy to watch.
The site's name comes from a tweet: "Idris Elba's standard face is the sympathetic squint, as if he knows how much his handsomeness hurts your heart, & he's sorry for it." Because it's true. Just look at him.
