    I don't remember 'Bond' having a racial denomination from the books, just an assumption.

    Yay or nay...?

    I had to google him to find out who he is. I'd never heard of him, seriously. Guess I'll have to try to get out more! Anyway; what makes him think he'd be considered as the next Bond? Has he been talking to the Broccoli clan?

    He had talks with them, last year, and he's under 'consideration' for a future project.

    He's a brilliant character/ action actor, for the record.

    Fans of 'The Wire'/ 'Luther' would testament to this.

    More 'Roche Five' than pain.
    Can deffo see him in the role although I always thought Colin Salmon would have been the first, I thought he was average in Luther though tbh, but obviously his portrayal of Stringer is legendary and shows he's more than capable of pulling it off.
    Might need to lose a bit of weight though lol, last time I saw him he was carrying a bit of timber.

    Haven't watched any of those programmes, so I can't pass judgement on his suitability re. Bond. I thought Craig was doing a good job with the role actually. He was excellent in Casino Royale, less so in Quantum of Solace (but it was a poor film anyway). And Skyfall is supposed to be excellent.

    Not being racist but Bond is white. 50 years of films with a white actor it just wouldn't feel like the same series of films. I rate Idris Elba highly as well but really don't think this should happen.

    Would love to see the reaction if Danny Dyer was touted as the next Shaft.

    Don't be silly.





















    He'd have to be able to actually act!
