 Where You’ve Seen The Cast Of The Harder They Fall Before

“The Harder They Fall” revolves partly around breaking outlaw Rufus Buck out of custody, and the trailer gets great mileage out of the moment when Buck emerges: Hey, that’s Idris Elba! Awesome!

Elba really broke out with his role as Stringer Bell, the smart, ambitious second-in-command to drug lord Avon Barksdale on HBO’s sleeper hit “The Wire.” The show may not have gotten the best viewing numbers when it was actually on, but it’s picked up a superb critical reputation over the years. And as it built up steam, so did Elba’s reputation as one of its breakout actors. By the time he guest-starred as new boss Charles Miner on “The Office,” his good looks — and ability to intimidate — were well-known enough that the show could poke fun at them. His stardom grew even more with his lead role on the dark, gripping BBC drama “Luther.”

Elba entered the blockbuster phase of his career in 2011, when he became part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Heimdall, a major supporting character in the “Thor” movies. After that, Elba got a string of major parts and blockbuster projects: “Pacific Rim,” “Prometheus,” “Beasts of No Nation,” “Star Trek Beyond,” and “The Dark Tower,” to name a few. He even lends his instantly recognizable voice to several big animated movies like “Zootopia” and “Finding Dory.” That’s a good list, and “The Harder They Fall” seems to fit right in.
