Roland Deschain

In Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series, Roland Deschain of Gilead (Idris Elba) is the last in a long line of gunslingers who keep the peace. He often appears detached and unsympathetic, but keeps a strong sense of heroism and helps others in need. He takes inspiration from Clint Eastwood’s The Man with No Name.

John Luther

Detective Chief Inspector John Luther (Idris Elba) works for the Serious and Serial Crime Unit on the BBC show Luther. He’s a brilliant, gritty detective who often toes the line between following the law and breaking it. Either way, tweed’s never looked better than it does on him.
