Idris Elba, whom¹ I adore, is going to be in the new Alex Cross movie based on the James Patterson books. (And the guy who made Pitch Black is directing.)
A lovely paycheck/name-maker² for Mr. Elba, I'm sure, but my Big Question is: Can/will I get past my knee-jerk-nose-wrinkles re: All Things James Patterson to see it? (And I'm not even talking shelling out at movie theater prices. I'm talking Netflix.)
¹(?)It feels right, but it might not be. See the footnote in the previous post.
²Among a broader audience, I mean. Not among those of us who shrieked, "OMG STRINGER BELL IS AT DUNDER MIFFLIN! STRINGER BELL IS A--" until getting beaned by pillows by our loving husbands. Come on. I know I was not the only one.
