Idris Elba Blames Fans for Ruining His Chances to Play James Bond


Idris Elba believes the Internet ruined his chances to play James Bond in the next spy thriller.

For the last few months people have been campaigning for Idris Elba to play James Bond but, the actor now feels overwhelmed. During an appearance at the British Film Institute in London on Tuesday for his documentary ‘Mandela, My Dad and Me, Elba’ told the crowd, “Honestly, it’s arumor that’s really starting to eat itself. If there was ever any chance of me getting Bond, it’s gone.”

I really doubt that, Idris, but maybe he knows something that I don’t. He also says, “Daniel Craig actually set the rumor off. About four years ago he said Idris Elba would be a great Bond and then it started to creep. I blame Daniel.”

Idris Elba may never play James Bond. Well then maybe Denzel Washington should play James Bond.
