Idris Elba was spotted today filming scenes for the upcoming Luther miniseries for which he’ll be reprising the titular role of the rough around the edges Detective Chief Inspector.

Idris Elba Films Luther

Elba, 42, grabbled with a fellow actor outside of a parked car, pulling his suit jacket over his head on the Luther set Monday. John Luther, Idris’ character, appeared to be off duty, as he was dressed casually in jeans, sneakers and a green winter jacket.

After shooting the brief fight scene, Idris took to Twitter to share a picture of himself in a more dressed up look as Luther. “John Luther does Selfie ;),” the British actor captioned the picture.

On Tuesday, Elba took to Twitter to celebrate the start of filming the upcoming Luther miniseries.

“First day back to set of John Luther… stand by East London,” he wrote.

In 2015, he’ll appear in African civil war film Beast of No Nation – which Netflix has picked up and hopes to turn into an Oscar candidate – Avengers: Age of Ultron and A Hundred Streets. Next year, Elba’s voice will be heard in The Jungle Book and Finding Dory, and he’ll appear in Bastille Day with Cinderella and Game of Thrones and Cinderella actor Richard Madden.
