Idris Elba would like to play NBA legend Michael Jordan in a movie--not on the basketball court. Idris said he asked Michael Jordan personally how he would feel about that. He said Jordan was a bit hesitant. Jordan responded, I'm not ready yet. Idris said the idea he has for portraying Jordan is more about his off court business accomplishments. He is a very astute businessman, really smart. His work as a philanthropist is like unspoken but people don't understand the work--he cares.
