Move over Daniel Craig, it seems the next Bond has already been cherry-picked and he doesn't have blonde hair and blue eyes; it's Idris Elba. Now before you get excited, this is nothing official - Daniel Craig's only getting warmed up with a few more films yet to complete - just something Skyfall Bond girl Naomie Harris has hinted at and something entertainment.ie's Facebook fans have certainly expressed an interest in.
What makes it seem all the more possible though is the news that Idris Elba has already met with Bond producer Barbara Broccoli. Speaking to The Huffington Post, Harris said: "I didn't realise that there was this talk [about a black Bond], 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."
Commenting on all the speculation last year, Elba told NPR: "I would do it, but I don't want to be called the first black James Bond."
Thoughts? We already know he's a badass from his role as Stringer Bell in The Wire. He's certainly attractive, no doubt a hit with the ladies. Vote yay or nay for Idris in our poll.
Or, could it be time Wayne Rooney got a shot?
