Idris Elba was stoned on the set of The Wire

British actor Idris Elba got high while filming some of his “best scenes” on the set of TV crime drama The Wire. The star played drug-dealer Stringer Bell in the show from 2002 to 2004 and admits he smoked marijuana with his co-star Wood Harris in between takes.
He tells rock magazine Q, “Wood is a big burner (pot smoker), proper. We’d sit in the trailer going over these very complex scenes and he’d burn all the time.
“One scene was pushed back and we sat in the trailer, burning and burning and playing music. The next thing you know, we’re on the set high as a kite. But it was one of the best scenes you’ve ever seen in your life.”
