Idris Elba is a Hollywood icon. Whether it's reinventing the Baltimore drug trade as Stringer Bell in The Wire or canceling the apocalypse in Pacific Rim, the man has a commanding presence onscreen that's hard to deny. And he's parlayed these performances into even bigger opportunities. Like that time he broke a land speed record.

We here at The Verge (read: me and maybe a handful of my colleagues) are big fans of Idris' and appreciate his work. But how much do you, dear reader, know about his accomplishments? Well, in the spirit of Hack Week 2015, I invite you to take this short quiz. Enjoy!
