Idris Elba has the fans of James Bond will once again dreaming. The 45-year-old actor, who is already being tipped as the next interpreter of the British secret agent, threw a selfie into the world with the text: “My name’s Elba, Idris Elba.”
The tweet was by many Bondfans interpreted as a confirmation that the actor in the skin will crawl out of 007, this replacement Daniel Craig. Craig crawled five times in the skin of James Bond and left two years ago to know to be ready with the character. Still, he allowed himself to be persuaded to have one more Bond to play in the 25th film next autumn in the cinemas appears.
A few hours after Elba, the news of the world took it with a handful of words, again followed a tweet. “Believe the hype”, wrote the actor. One thing is for sure: Elba builds the suspense well.
Bond producer Barbara Broccoli threw itself rather oil on the fire by stating that it is about time that 007 is played by a non-white actor. Elba would be at the top of her wish list. The 45-year-old actor himself denied several times that he is the secret agent going to play, because he is too old.
