On the heels of reports that Idris Elba, best known for his roles on The Wire and Luther, may be the new James Bond, Mumford & Sons is showing just how sexy the British actor can be in their new video for Love of the Night.
The beautifully shot video, which was also directed by the actor, has Elba, 40, portraying a blind man. The actor was eager to reveal his latest project, tweeting on Sunday: "I want to share this with you... I wrote & directed this video for @MumfordAndSons Very proud amazing song."
Love of the Night is off the Mumford & Sons album Babel, which sold an impressive 600,000 copies during its first week.
