Bbritish actor Damson Idris recently sat down with The Breakfast Club to discuss a variety of topics including the return of the popular FX series Snowfall, playing Beethoven’s “Für Elise” with Saweetie’s supposed love, and wish to portray black legends such as Eddie Murphy and Sidney Poitier on the big screen. However, there is an interesting and more contemporary individual that Idris will become for an upcoming biopic.
“I’m about to play Rich Paul,” he said. A longtime friend and business partner of LeBron James, Paul is also well known for his many profitable ventures with the 4x NBA champion as well as the controversial rule that bears his name. “It’s time we started to cherish the black bumps, and Rich is someone people need to know about. This guy has completely changed the game, and I’m happy and lucky to call him a big brother…I’ve looking forward to honoring his story.
But lately, the CEO of Klutch Sports Group has been making headlines for more non-sports, non-business activities. Paul, 40, has been spending the past few months with Adele, and the singer was spotted wearing a chunky diamond ring at the Brit Awards last month. Neither party has confirmed if he was the one who bought it for her or if it was the symbol of the wedding bells in their future.
Idris spoke on other topics, such as his audition for Snowfall and his respect for John Singleton, what the future might hold for his character Franklin Saint, and life after the show. Towards the end of the interview, the convo turned to one of Idris’ idols, Denzel Washington. Idris really started to hear comparisons between him and the macbeth star after Franklin Saint’s”Brick by brickuttered in the Season 3 episode, “Blackout.”
For example, a reporter approached Washington at a red carpet event last December to A newspaper for Jordan, and she asked Washington what he thought of the up-and-coming actor. However, Washington did not know Idris at all and even called him To dance.
“I was at home, all alone, and my phone exploded,” Idris told the Breakfast Club. “And it’s a bunch of articles and stuff like that, people call me. And it’s like, ‘Denzel is talking about you!’ I’m like, ‘Oh my God, this is crazy!’ »
“So, uh, yeah,” he continued, “[Denzel] didn’t know who I was – and he called me the dance address! “It’s all the love of the Snowfall yet an actor. “Above all of this noise, Denzel Washington is my idol,” concluded Idris. “He’s like a god to me, and I’ll never have anything bad to say about him.”
