Patrick Malahide to Return as George Cornelius

George and Luther: Best friends forever.

Excellent news!  Patrick Malahide will return to a new series of “Luther” as that charming gangster George Cornelius.  From the BBC website:

The Golden Globe and SAG Award-winner actor Idris Elba returns to his iconic role as DCI John Luther, for the fifth series created by Emmy-nominated writer Neil Cross and produced by BBC Studios.

Dermot Crowley, Michael Smiley and Patrick Malahide will return for the four-part series as DSU Martin Schenk, Benny Silver and George Cornelius; and Wunmi Mosaku, who won a Bafta for her performance in BBC One’s Damilola, Our Loved Boy in 2017, will join as new recruit D.S. Catherine Halliday.

George is such a wonderful and fun character.  His gleefully dark sense of humour makes him a true joy to watch.  I can’t wait to see him back in action.
