Los Angeles - Idris Elba wants to appear on Girls.

The Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom actor has made an appeal to the show's creator and star Lena Dunham - who he was a guest alongside on UK talk show The Graham Norton Show earlier this month - to write him a part on the popular programme.

He tweeted:"@lenadunham Very funny woman. Can I come do a scene on your show? (sic)"

Joking about a topless photograph of himself which he accidentally posted on the site recently, he added: "i promise, NO selfies...:) (sic)"

Although Lena is yet to agree to give the British actor a part on her show, she tweeted back: "@idriselba You are a pure pleasure, an honor to share the couch with you #selfiesforever

"PS thank you for calling me a woman, it made me feel all tingly inside <3 (sic)".
