Idris Elba Will Not Be the Next James Bond

We’ve been through this before. Rumors circulate that Idris Elba might be the next James Bond, then Idris Elba firmly shuts down rumors that he’ll be the next James Bond. Regardless, it’s still hard to hear Idris Elba confirm that he is not going to be the next James Bond.
Two weeks ago, rumors began to circulate that James Bond producers were considering Elba for the role of 007. A few days later, Elba himself had a little fun with this round of rumors with a few cryptic tweets about playing Bond. This sent the internet into a fury of speculation and even rage, that Elba could be considered. And let’s be perfectly clear—there’s no reason why Elba can’t play Bond. But the problem is, he’s pretty clearly confirmed again that he’s not the next James Bond actor.
Good Morning Britain tracked down Elba on Wednesday and asked him if he’d be the next person to play Bond.
“No,” Elba replied.
Okay, so that’s pretty clear. But there’s no reason to give up hope yet. There’s still plenty of time for Bond producers to find another 007. And even when they do find their person, it likely won’t be announced until after Craig’s final film.
So if you really—REALLY—want it to be Elba, things could still, possibly, maybe change between now and then. But for now, it’s a real hard no.
But with Danny Boyle and now Elba officially off the table for the next Bond film, who even cares anymore?
