Denzel is too old at this point, and the other go-to black guy is Will Smith who isn’t credible as James Bond. The idea of Idris Elba has been floated and I think it’s a great idea. There is no finer brotha (he’s actually British-ish) in the business right now than Mr. Elba. I’ve seen him in Prometheus, The Wire, Luther, and this guy can definite project cool and debonair without being empty. There will be objections among the Stormfront.org crowd but I think the far majority of people will have no problem with a black James Bond.
I never really took to Daniel Craig (too rough looking) nor Pierce Brosnan (too effeminate.)
I’m ready for a new James Bond. !
