To Hollywood, Idris Elba is probably just a darker skinned version of Will Smith. Other than their complexions, they are exactly the same and TOTALLY interchangeable. I mean, can you think of two other big Hollywood stars who can also rap (Ansel Elgort DOES NOT COUNT)? As soon as I saw a headline somewhere that said Idris would be replacing Will Smith in an upcoming project, I assumed it was the King James biopic playing Venus and Serena Williams’ dark-skinned daddy. But it wasn’t! Idris is replacing Will as Deadshot in the Suicide Squad sequel.
