Actress Naomie Harris Confirms Idris Elba James Bond Talks

Now Ladies, wouldn’t Idris Elba make one sexy James BondEGL sure does think so!

There has been plenty of buzz surrounding the possibility of Idris Elba becoming the first black James Bond! Everyone, including current James Bond girl Naomie Harris, would be overly delighted to see the British actor on the big screen!

In an interview with the Huffington Post, the Skyfall actress said that Idris Elba had her vote for the role!

“I didn’t realize that there was this talk and then I did a film with Idris [Elba] and he said that he met Barbara Broccoli [James Bond producer] and that it does seem like there is a possibility in the future that there could very well be a Black James Bond. And I would have to vote for Idris because I just finished working with him and he’s a great guy.”

In September 2011, Elba told CNN that if he does take the role, he doesn’t want to be called the “first Black James Bond.”

 “Sean Connery wasn’t the Scottish James Bond and Daniel Craig wasn’t the blue-eyed James Bond,” said Elba. “So if I played him, I don’t want to be called the Black James Bond.”

He certainly has a point!

It’s very impressive that the British actor is buzz-worthy of the legendary role, and the meeting with James Bond’s producer, Broccoli, is a step closer to Elba getting the opportunity to make history!

In the meantime, checkout the trailer from the new James Bond movie Skyfall, which hits theatres on November 9!
