I've enjoyed Daniel Craig as James Bond, but he won't be making these films forever. Sooner or later we are going to see yet another actor in the role of James Bond, and that actor could be Idris Elba. Elba is a great actor that has had roles in The Wire, Thor and Prometheus.
While promoting 007 Skyfall co-star Naomie Harris revealed that Elba has met with the producers of the films to entertain the idea of casting him as the first Black 007. Here's what she told The Huffington Post:
I didn't realize that there was this talk and then I did a film with Idris [Elba] and he said that he met Barbara Broccoli [James Bond producer] 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.
I could easily see Elba in the role of Bond! He's a great actor that could easily pull off the role! It will be interesting to see if he eventually ends up being cast. He's got my vote. What do you think about Elba possibly landing the role of Bond some day?
