Is Idris Elba Going To Be James Bond?

Idris Elba is putting those rumors about him playing James Bond to rest — sort of.

In a new tweet, Idris recently played on Bond’s famous line, writing, “My name’s Elba, Idris Elba.”

HOWEVER, a few hours later he responded back: “Don’t believe the HYPE ….”

Meanwhile, the boss of the Bond franchise, Barbara Broccoli, according to the Daily Star, recently said it was time for someone of color to play James Bond. Is it true, or is it not? Of course it furthered the speculations.

What is it?!
