You know him as Stringer from HBO’s “The Wire”, but Idris Elba could be the next James Bond. Our favorite chocolate boy wonder recently said that he didn’t come to the United States from the UK to play “black roles,” but merely “roles.

Rumor has it that Elba could one day wind up playing one of the most iconic British film roles there is: James Bond.

“It’s a rumor,” he says flatly. But does that mean you should dismiss it out of hand? Not necessarily. Elba says he recently talked about the role with his father and said that while it sounded like an interesting idea, he had concerns. “I just don’t want to be the black James Bond,” he says. “Sean Connery wasn’t the Scottish James Bond, and Daniel Craig wasn’t the blue-eyed James Bond, so if I played him, I don’t want to be called the black James Bond.”

Who thinks Idris should be the next James Bond??? *Raises hands!!!
