Shouldn't He Be Endorsing Burners Instead?

A surprising new endorsement from the actor who played Stringer Bell on "The Wire":

Sprint along with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) and Wells Fargo, announces Golden Globe nominee Idris Elba as the official ambassador for the 4G Competitive Edge Filmmakers Challenge, a competition that calls on college students to shoot a short film with a smartphone. The short film is designed to illustrate how the ease and services of Sprint 4G gives students a competitive edge.
A good cause, of course. But ironic that the guy whose most famous role was as a man police tried to use phone wiretaps to catch is now endorsing wireless phones.
