Idris Elba becomes the first man to cover Maxim magazine. The actor, who recently confirmed he’ll be on Star Trek Beyond, was chosen by the new editor-in-chief Kate Lanphear. She considered Elba to be the perfect fit of a Maxim man, and noted his accomplishments as an actor, DJ, recipient of British land speed record and collaboration with Superdry clothing line.

“It just makes sense to have a man in fashion on the cover. For me, he was really the perfect embodiment of what I think the new Maxim man is.”

The September issue also includes a spread featuring Fetty Wap. Make sure to get the issue!
