Most British TV fans know Idris Elba from his role as John Luther in the popular dark crime drama Luther. (Maybe as drug lord Stringer Bell from The Wire. Or possibly as the guy who gives the canceling the apocalypse speech from Pacific Rim.) But most aren't used to seeing this particular actor being funny, and we don't often think of him as having comedic chops. 

Well, that's about to change.

Watch the Trailer for David Tennant’s New HBO Comedy 'Camping'

So, it may have taken David Tennant a few years post-Doctor Who to become a proper big name star, but he certainly seems to be everywhere these days now. (Not that I am complaining, let’s be clear.)

Tennant’s next project is something a bit different for the actor of late – a comedy. Tennant is set to play Walt in upcoming HBO limited series Camping. The eight-episode comedy will tell the story of a celebratory camping trip in honor of Walt’s 45th birthday, which quickly becomes a disaster. Watch its first trailer and see what you think!
