Reports have emerged that actor, rapper, DJ, producer and dearly beloved British icon Idris Elba may be in talks to star in the next James Bond film, just not as 007 himself.
Following the reveal that ‘No Time to Die’ would be Daniel Craig’s final big-screen appearance as the suave special agent James Bond, rumours ran rampant of the next potential bond, with Elba being a frontrunner for the role based on speculation alone. The 49-year-old recently shut down such speculation, with British news outlet The Sun reporting that he is currently engaging in discussions to take on a role in the upcoming Bond Film. While he will not occupy the role of the titular character, he commands enough pull and respect to make him a desirable addition to the cast.
While discussions are in early stages, with all the hype surrounding the Bond franchise and Elba touted as potentially the next Bond villain, we can’t wait to see what’s next for the blockbuster franchise.
