Sony Want THOR Star Idris Elba To Be The Next JAMES BOND

There's been a lot of talk about the next James Bond being played by a black actor, and one name which keeps coming up is Luther and Thor: The Dark World star Idris Elba. He's even expressed interest in the role, revealing in a reddit Q&A not too long ago that, "Yes, if it was offered to me, absolutely," he would play the Ian Fleming creation.

Just like many of us think Elba should be next 007, so too does Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chairman Amy Pascal according to more leaded "Sony Hack" emails unearthed by The Daily Beast.

In an email from January 2014 (so quite some time ago, and an indication that the good stuff in these emails is now reaching an end), she's quoted as saying, "Idris should be the next bond." It's something they've thought about then, but as Pascal will more than likely be out of a job soon as this scandal worsens, her opinion may not matter...

Thankfully Sony is not responsible for the Bond movies.

I am not Raciest, but I am against this idea of Black Bond (or Black Superman/Spiderman), because these characters have certain background designed since beginning, and African person doesn't fit in it.

Like African, even Indian doesn't fit to become Bond, because Bond's character is based on Spy of British/Scottish background from 1950's era of Cold War.
But if at all Indian is considered for role, only Hritik fits for the role (ref Bang Bang :D)

'James Bond' author says Idris Elba is 'too street' to play 007

"Idris Elba is a terrific actor, but I can think of other black actors who would do it better," he said, suggesting Adrian Lester as an alternative.

"For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part. It’s not a colour issue. I think he is probably a bit too 'street' for Bond. Is it a question of being suave? Yeah."

Twitter, on the other hand, thinks Idris Elba would be perfect.
