Idris Elba Tweets a Picture Perfect Response to Those Bond Rumors
Idris has a Twitter account, and he knows how to use it. Added bonus: he always seems to manage just the right combination of humility and humor. Case in point, this perfect goofy-sweet response to the news he just might be taking on the role of James Bond, once Daniel Craig moves on:
Isn't 007 supposed to handsome? Glad you think I've got a shot! Happy New year people. pic.twitter.com/3g9lAl2Uo3— Idris Elba (@idriselba) December 27, 2014
“I just don’t want to be the black James Bond,” he says. “Sean Connery wasn’t the Scottish James Bond, and Daniel Craig wasn’t the blue-eyed James Bond, so if I played him, I don’t want to be called the black James Bond.”
Smart, funny, handsome, sharp in a suit, and knows just how he’d nab a cab to get to a meeting with Sony, should they call…
“…I’d take the taxi driver out of the car, hostage. The taxi; jump out while it was moving, jump onto a pedal bike that was just past the door as I got on it, and then get onto a plane — on the wing — land on top of Sony Studios, slide through the air conditioning, and land in the office.”
I’d say we have our next 007.
