Trending News: Idris Elba Has Finally Responded To Those James Bond Rumors
The name’s Idris, Idris Elba. But you can’t be blamed if you thought the British actor was going to be the next Bond, James Bond. The rumors have been everywhere. And not even just lately. Rumors about who’ll replace Daniel Craig – who’s set to appear in his final Bond flick in October 2019 – have been around since at least 2014.

Case closed? Err, I don’t know about that. Just because Elba can’t confirm he’s Bond right now, doesn’t mean he won’t be. There’s still a good amount of time before they’ll need a new bowtied-hero. Let’s not rule Elba out just yet.
