Idris Elba Drama ‘A Hundred Streets’ Casts ‘Les Miserables,’ ‘Hobbit’ Actors

Director Jim O’Hanlon’s “A Hundred Streets” filled out its cast today, announcing Samantha Barks (“Les Miserables”), Ken Stott (“The Hobbit” series), Charlie Creed-Miles (“Wild Bill,” “The Fifth Element”), Steve Mackintosh (“Luther,” “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels”), Tom Cullen (“Downton Abbey”) and Emma Rigby (“Plastic,” “Hollyoaks”). They join previously announced stars Gemma Arterton and Idris Elba.

In the vein of “Crash” and “Amores Perros,” the film follows London residents who survive the grind of everyday life as well as those living opulent lifestyles, whose existences interconnect as they face dramatic change.

Barks plays Lotte, the ex-girlfriend of rich playboy Jahmal (Adam Bakri), who re-enters his life with her best friend (Rigby) at a moment that forces him into a life-changing decision that sends him on the run, chased by his ex-special forces security guard Gordon, played by Mackintosh.

Creed-Miles plays George, a cab driver with dreams of becoming a father some day who sees his life torn apart, and must find the strength to face the world again. Cullen plays a handsome friend to Emily (Arterton) from her school days, who could get in the way of her getting her life back together.

Stott plays Terence, an aging actor who connects with Kingsley (Franz Drameh), a young drug dealer, and helps the young man realize bigger dreams for himself.
