Well, sort of.  The star of this year’s summer action flick, Pacific Rim, is going to spend his summer in Ibiza, as DJ Driis.

This is the actor’s first real residency as a DJ, and he’ll be spinning in the House Music capital of the world. It’s the same place that world famous DJ, David Guetta, will be, and has housed residence for Tiesto, Audiojack, Avicii, and now DJ Driis.

“This is my first official residency in that world,” said Elba. “I play house music, so it’s going to be great, Ibiza Rocks!”

The English heart throb told us about his new gig while doing press for his summer blockbuster, Pacific Rim. He plays Stacker Pentecost, a marshal that leads an army of  machines to victory over some unearthly creatures. Guillermo Del Toro not only directed the film, but he co wrote the screen play as well. One major concept of the movie is mind sharing, or drifting, and Idris let us know whose mind he would want to share. Check it out!

Pacific Rim is in theaters July 12th.

Watch: Halle Berry Issues Whiskey Challenge During ‘Kingsman’ Interview

Halle Berry proved she could hang with the fellas when she downed a glass of whiskey at Comic Con alongside her Kingsman: The Golden Circle co-stars. But don’t expect her to do that again.

“No more, no more,” she said after hilariously bolting from the room when we asked her if she’d drink another glass. “I will never [do it again], and no one lets me live down the fact that I did it either.”

According to Berry she was ill for three days after, but that didn’t stop her and Pedro Pascal from daring me to throw back a glass right before our interview.

Not one to turn down a challenge, I did it, and received a round of applause and high fives before preceding to discuss the duo’s roles and why they decided to join the cast of Kingsman.

“Matthew Vaughn’s version of these movies always interested me” explained Berry who is no stranger to spy flicks after starring in the James Bond film Die Another Day. “I was apart of the Bond series and I feel like this is similar but it’s also for the new generation.”

She continued, “Some of the elements are the same but I call it spy thriller 2.0, he takes it to the next level that no one else does right now.”

In the film Berry, Pascal, Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum play members of the Statesmen – a U.S. Spy agency operating out of a Kentucky Bourbon distillery. Pascal told us he gained a newfound appreciation for men in suits, but still prefers his jeans.

“I play agent whiskey. I’m a southern gentlemen so I’m a little more buttoned up … I’m like the stateside version of those square pegs from across the pond,” he joked.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theaters September 22.
