One half of the duo, Oliver Leimbach, told Jim Wilson the Hollywood mega-star has been putting the boys through their paces in recent weeks.

Despite the crowd’s chants, the staunchly “anti-shoey” Oli refused to allow Elba to succumb to peer pressure.
“I guess there is a part of me that would’ve liked to see him skol a beer out of a shoe, but I didn’t give the audience the satisfaction.”
