You might know actor Idris Elba as the bloke that cancelled the apocalypse in last year's cinema blockbuster Pacific Rim, or you might have seen him guarding the gates to Asgard in the Thor films.

Maybe you saw his go at portraying the great Nelson Mandela, or as 'Stringer' Bell in the gritty cop drama The Wire. And of course, the list goes on.

Now you'll know him as a lifelong revhead, thanks to his new documentary series King of Speed, launched in December.

Developed with the UK's government-funded BBC network, the series will see Elba exploring his own love for speed, and finding out what drives other figures in the motoring and racing worlds.

Elba says he plans to race his way across the globe in the new series, so we might even see the actor land down-under for a spin in a V8 Supercar.

Catch the first episode above, and the second here (Youtube).
