Fans might have their dream come true because Idris Elba might just play the role of James Bond.

Barbara Broccoli told director Antoine Fuqua that it’s time for an African American actor to play James Bond. This can give Idris Elba a chance to play the role. Barbara has talked to Denzel Washington about playing the role. Washington is the only other person that has ben spoken of to play the role beside Elba. 

Daniel Craig has portrayed James Bond since 2006 and will play the role again in 2019. After 13 years he might take a step down and let someone else take on the role. Fuqua was shocked that there hasn’t been an African American James Bond but he believes it should be Elba. He told Daily Express “Idris could do it if he was really tight and in shape. He doesn’t look 45. No one would even know.” Looks like Elba is the perfect pick for the role. 

Fans have been asking for Elba to portray 007. It hasn’t been clear if Elba even wants to play the role. As stated earlier this year Elba said he wants to see a woman to play Bond.
