IDRIS ELBA: Never Asked to Play Bond

Written by on March 12, 2019

His name is Elba, Idris Elba, and despite all of those rumors about him being the next James Bond, it turns out that he’s never even been approached about the part. That’s revealed in a new interview with the star in The Hollywood Reporter.

Idris admits, though, he’s flattered by all the tweets about him potentially taking over from Daniel Craig, who has signed on for one more Bond picture.

So who does Idris want to be? “I want to be Donald Glover,” he says, referring to the star of the TV show Atlanta who is also the Grammy-winning rapper Childish Gambino. Idris adds, “He’s the man. He literally does it all.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
