Report: Idris frontrunner to be Bond

IF Daniel Craig despises being James Bond so much, he should be replaced, right? There are so many actors willing to drink that shaken—not stirred—martini. But according to a report from Esquire magazine, producers are leaning on Idris Elba taking on the role.

According to the report, the interest over the 45-year-old “Luther” actor started in 2014 yet.

Esquire quoted a report that states: “Director Antoine Fuqua revealed the details of a conversation with Bond producer Barbara Broccoli, in which she said ‘it is time’ for a non-white actor to take on the iconic role. Fuqua discussed who might be next in the running with Broccoli, who’s certain the progressive move ‘will happen eventually.’ ...Idris Elba (is) a reported frontrunner for the role.”

Elba immediately trended on Twitter yesterday with netizens weighing in on the report. Most of the netizens agree that Elba will be a good choice to take on the iconic role of James Bond, with a peppering of nayes.
