Idris Elba took the stage at Sunday night's (January 15) Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles to accept a trophy for Best Performance by an Actor in BBC's "Luther" TV series.

Besides being impressed by Elba's outfit (studded Christian Louboutin sneakers, paired with a full suit) MTV News' Josh Horowitz chatted with the actor about his upcoming roles in 2013.

Elba drew attention to the role his mum, a Ghanaian, played in his career while receiving the award on Sunday night, saying "mum, we made it."

Next year, Elba will star in Guillermo del Toro's big, ambitious, monster versus robot movie "Pacific Rim." The actor has been in Toronto filming del Toro's first film since 2008's "Hellboy II: The Golden Army," and he said he can't wait to get back.

"I'm going back tomorrow morning. I've been there for five months," Elba said. "I love it. Guillermo's a genius, and the film we're making is a huge film, bad monster movie and robots and me."

If starring in del Toro's next film wasn't enough, Elba also has his own spot in the Marvel universe to worry about. The actor confirmed that his character, Heimdall, would be making another appearance soon. " 'Thor 2' for sure," Elba said. " 'Avengers,' we're not sure about, but 'Thor 2' we're going at it again."

Elba won a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini-Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television for "Luther," a BBC series about a troubled detective. He shared his excitement about winning for a smaller show. "This is great. We made our little show in London, and now we're getting this worldwide recognition of it," Elba said. "Love it."
