Idris Elba Wants a Cameo in ‘Girls’
Idris Elba wants to appear on Girls.
The Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom - actor has made an appeal to the show's creator and star Lena Dunham - who he was a guest alongside on UK talk show The Graham Norton Show earlier this month - to write him a part on the popular program.
"@lenadunham Very funny woman. Can I come do a scene on your show? [sic]," he wrote on Twitter. Joking about a topless photograph of himself which he accidentally posted on the site recently, he added, "i promise, NO selfies... [sic]."
Although Lena is yet to agree to give the British actor a part on her show, she tweeted back, "@idriselba You are a pure pleasure, an honor to share the couch with you #selfiesforever PS thank you for calling me a woman, it made me feel all tingly inside <3 [sic]."
Meanwhile, Lena has admitted she has created the "perfect" role on the show for Victoria Beckham after learning the former Spice Girls singer is a big fan and was keen to make an appearance in the next season. "I was extremely flattered to hear she would love to appear. I have the perfect part in mind and I've reached out offering her a role in an episode for next season. So fingers crossed," she told Grazia.
