James Bond Producers Are Leaning Toward Idris Elba As the Next 007

Look, I'm all in favor of this move -- the notion that James Bond shouldn't be black is as ridiculous as the notion that he shouldn't be blond (Daniel Craig has been fantastic in the role, even if the films have been uneven). But, I would just point out that when this news first blew up, it was a publication citing another publication citing another publication... Also, by the time of Bond 26 (Bond 25 is coming out next year with Craig), Idris Elba will also undoubtedly be over 50 years old.

Then again, he doesn't look like a bloke approaching 50... I'd still give him at least one and maybe two shots at the role. And he seems game to do it!
