There are tons of reasons that Idris Elba should be the next James Bond. He’s sexy, athletic and would look really good running in a suit. And he’s sexy. Did I already say sexy?
This isn’t just my wishful thinking. There is (allegedly) some fact behind the internet buzz concerning Elba playing the next James Bond. According to the Huffington Post, Naomie Harris (the most recent Bond girl and Elba’s co-star in Mandela) says that Elba met with the long-time Bond producer Barbara Broccoli to discuss becoming the first black James Bond.
Harris reportedly said, “I didn’t realize that there was this talk and then I did a film with Idris and he said that he met Barbara Broccoli and that it does seem like there is a possibility in the future that there could very well be a black James Bond. And I would have to vote for Idris because I just finished working with him and he’s a great guy.”
So, what do you think? Would Idris Elba make a good James Bond?
