Yes, you read the title right. Our favorite Londoner, Idris Elba, is the new Alex Cross!
Cross is the 12th book in the Alex Cross series by James Patterson. In the mystery, Cross tries to catch a serial killer and mutilator. The suspect also may be the one who killed Cross' wife years ago.
Idris Elba will be the second actor to play this role. (The first being Morgan Freeman who played in Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider). I'm sure he will bring sexiness, mystery, and heat to the screen as always. My hope is his partnership with James Patterson in the Cross movie series turns into a James Bond-like phenomenon. Cross your fingers!
