Word around hollywood circles are swirling that Idris Elba aka Stringer Bell is up for the role of James Bond.

This would make for some inspired casting. Daniel Craig still owns the role, but he’s up for replacement after the next installment.

Folks close to Idris claim “It’s a very old rumor. He would do it, but he doesn’t want to be called the first black James Bond. Sean Connery wasn’t the Scottish James Bond and Daniel Craig wasn’t the blue-eyed James Bond. So if he played him, he doesn’t want to be called the black James Bond.”
