Check our post
on our Top Five
choice for the next James Bond
when the delicious Daniel Craig moves on,
and here is what Idris had to say to GQ about
being the next 007.
'It’s a rumour. And, I have to tell you, if the producers of Bond
thought that I was self-campaigning,
it would be such a turn-off.
I’m flattered, obviously but I’ve been advised
to just pipe down about it.’
‘Apparently, Daniel Craig said I’d be a great Bond.
Daniel, why did you say that? Dropped me right in it!
What an honour it would be, but also, what an indication of change.
I know Ian Fleming lived in Jamaica for a long time, didn’t he?
I think it’s interesting to think what he would
have made of a black man playing Bond.’
