Idris Elba Reportedly a Top Contender to Play James Bond

Idris Elba Reportedly a Top Contender to Play James Bond

Fuqua added: "Idris could do it if he was in shape".

Despite the entire WhatCulture office - and most of you, probably - demanding that I be cast as the next Bond, producers might actually be honing in on some else to play the role.

While there's no denying that Elba is a phenomenal actor, his age could be a key factor in the ultimate decision of who takes up the mantle of 007 next.

The latest rumors surrounding the James Bond franchise come from The Equalizer II director Antonine Fuqua, who revealed that Bond series producer Barbara Broccoli is looking for a black Bond to carry on the franchise after Daniel Craig's final film, Bond 25. 'You need a guy with a physically strong presence. The news comes by way of The Daily Star, which reportedly caught Fuqua's comments about his conversation with Broccoli at the launch of his new app SoundFi, which supposedly provides "3D sound for movies" delivered through viewers' headphones.

Alex Jones content that prompted bans vanishes from Twitter
While he began broadcasting his shows in 1999, Jones' profile has spread from the far-right fringe in recent years. It's also possible that InfoWars itself is removing the videos as a way of avoiding a full Twitter suspension.

Elba's name has always been tossed around as an ideal candidate.

Elba, 45, was rumored to be the next James Bond in 2014 following the hack into Sony Pictures' emails.

For years, Idris Elba has been pushed to the front of the line by fans of the James Bond franchise as the next 007.

Idris Elba was a massive early favourite back in 2015, but his own denials and so much time passing had bumped him down the list. In a story from the United Kingdom -based tabloid Daily Star, it was stated that Equalizer 2 director Antoine Fuqua told "an industry pal" about a conversation he'd had with longtime Bond producer Barbara Broccoli. It has now been reported that Luther and Star Trek: Beyond actor Idris Elba is in the running for the role.
