Idris Elba Admits He Was No Longer Interested In Becoming The Next James Bond When It Became About Race
The coveted role of James Bond has been left vacant after Daniel Craig said, “Get somebody else to do it!” and traded in his martinis for a value pack of Metamucil. And although it’s still unclear who will be stepping into those powder blue boy shorts as the next Agent 007, one name has been circulating for years, and that name is Elba. Idris Elba. Unfortunately, Idris also wanted no part in taking on the role primarily because he believes that time has passed, and he doesn’t want to break a hip while running around chasing bad guys and bedding beautiful British broads. Or at least, that was what he wanted us to think. Because now Idris reveals he grew tired of the Bond talk once the conversation turned to race.
Ever since Daniel Craig hung his blue speedo up and withdrew from a life of espionage as James Bond, many have been wondering who would step into the role next. There was speculation for years that beautiful British brotha Idris Elba would take over, but he basically told them to get someone else to do it since he’s too old to be jumping, running, and leaping over shit. Someone should give Tom Cruise that memo, but that’s a discussion for another time. So now, Scottish panty creamer Richard Madden may have given us a few clues as to who the next Bond will be because it might be him.
I still don’t know why producers are calling the longstanding James Bond franchise “spy movies,” because clearly, he’s a vampire. Think about it; he glamours the hell out of women whose panties hit the floor as soon as he speaks. He’s been around since the sixties and still looks just as young as he did back then, AND he can change his appearance at will since multiple actors have played him. I think this is a missed opportunity for them to usher in Bond’s supernatural years after Daniel Craig‘s departure. But whatever direction they go in they want everyone to know they will not be using a younger actor because with the franchise’s history it just wouldn’t work.
James Bond Producers Are Looking For The Next 007 And Need Someone Who Can Make A Ten-Year Commitment
As 2021’s No Time To Die marks Daniel Craig’s exit as the latest iteration of lethal Lothario James Bond (“allegedly“) we can all prepare for another sexy brooding Englishman disarming bombs and unhooking bras in the name of THE QUEEN (though that may all change since she has gone to glory). But before any of that happens, the producers behind the exciting espionage life of Agent 007, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, want to make sure they take meticulous care in choosing the next actor for the role, since whoever steps into it will be on the hook for at least the next decade.
You know the British Royal Family is pressed for some good PR because they have risked the very fabric of the monarchy by sending 4 of their highest ranking members to a movie premiere. And the movie is fucking cursed! I guess they’re running low on Egyptian antiquities to pilfer and instead decided to tempt the gods by sending Princes Charles and William, and Duchesses Camilla and Kate to go rub elbows with the Hollywood hoi polloi at the London premiere of No Time To Die, the James Bond movie that was supposed to have come out in 2019 and make Ana de Armas a star. And here we are, 2 years and 200 pap strolls later, and neither of those things has happened!
I don’t know if there’s ever been a movie in recent memory so woefully cursed as No Time To Die. Release dates have come and gone and come again. We already watched the 2nd trailer back in September 2020. Ben Affleck was preemptively banned from the red carpet in August. It’s been nearly a year since we tried listening to Billie Eilish’s theme song and decided it was meh. Want to feel old? They found that toilet camera on the set way back in June. OF 2019! Now, because of COVID, Deadline reports that the release date for the 25th James Bond movie has pushed back once again. Instead of getting it as an Easter basket, it’s going to be presented as a Thanksgiving turkey.
