Remington's World > Idris Elba In Talks To Play First Black James Bond
Actress Naomi Harris has revealed that Hollywood star Idris Elba is in talks to play the role of James Bond.
The ‘Skyfall’ actress has confirmed the actor met with movie chiefs to discuss the possibility of taking over from current James Bond actor Daniel Craig.
“I didn’t realize that there was this talk and then I did a film with Idris and he said that he met Barbara Broccoli and that it does seem like there is a possibility in the future that there could very well be a black James Bond,” Naomi told the Huffington Post.
Adding: “And I would have to vote for Idris because I just finished working with him and he’s a great guy.”
Naomi and Idris are set to star in Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, which will be released in 2013.
