Idris Elba Wins a Game of Russian Roulette in New 'Luther' Preview (VIDEO)
The 2-minute clip shows Elba's John Luther tied to a restaurant chair as gangsters hit him in the face, point guns at him and zap him with a taser, while demanding to know where the leader's son is.
The actor will play a wannabe DJ and manny in the upcoming series.
Luther manages to break the chair, escape his bindings, grab a gun and confront the boss, insisting he doesn't know anything about the younger man's disappearance.
The show's four-episode fifth season was announced in January. Returning for the next chapter alongside Elba are Dermot Crowley, Michael Smiley and Patrick Malahide.
Here's an early Christmas present from us to you. 😉
