Idris Elba’s Response to the James Bond Casting Rumors

Idris Elba’s Response to the James Bond Casting Rumors

So following the Sony email hack which revealed that the studio bosses are considering Idris Elba to play 007 when Daniel Craig’s contract elapses, there has been quite a furor over the possible decision, both for and against Elba as an appropriate casting choice.

Idris himself came on twitter to respond to the rumours. Check his tweet below.idris

Oh my Idris… So modest… 😀

Anyway, if and when Elba plays James Bond, he’s asked that we not do the THING where we call him the first black James Bond. He pointed out on his Reddit AMA that we didn’t call Sean Connery the Scottish James Bond, or Daniel Craig the blue-eyed James Bond. I’m with him on that, but I do know he will definitely get that label, whether he likes it or not.

    Oh Idris ever so humble. He’ll get the black stereotype whether he likes it or not, because the race thing might be why he doesn’t get the job( there are already complains about how Ian Flemming’s James Bond was never black), so if he does get it, i’ll be one of the people shouting it from the rooftops!!! The first black 007!!!
