Idris Elba Gives Cheeky Response To Bond Talk


HBO's Post 2014 Golden Globe Awards Party - Arrivals

Last week we learned some interesting things about possible plans for a new James Bond. According to some of the leaked emails that came out of the recent hacking of Sony Pictures high-ups, the company is considering casting Idris Elba as the next James Bond.

Current James Bond Daniel Craig has at least two more movies slated before his contract is up. And of course, the most interesting part of the notion that Elba could be 007 is the fact that he is black.

Notoriously racist pundit Rush Limbaugh stated last week that Elba should not be the next Bond, and that the character needs to stay white and Scottish (despite the fact that a Scottish actor has not played Bond in quite some time.

Elba responded to the whole thing with a funny Twitter picture, throwing up a funny selfie with the message “Isn’t 007 supposed to be handsome?”
