In a recent radio interview, four-time James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan joined the likes of Jamie Foxx and Kanye West in their support of making [Luther](series:205901) and [Pacific Rim](movie:204401) actor Idris Elba the next 007.
Brosnan gave his suggestion stating, "Yeah, he [Idris Elba] would make a good Bond." While that's not the most enthused sounding statement, it's support nonetheless and definitely something that we agree with.
One of the things we learned from the Sony leaks last year, was that Elba's name was thrown out to play Daniel Craig's successor. This suggestion was met with a resounding "Yes!" from most fans. And Elba himself who said in his Reddit AMA that, if offered the role he would "absolutely" take it.
Elba was not blind to these rumors, and even responded to them via Twitter.
Here are three good reasons why Idris Elba would be a fantastic James Bond.
1. He looks incredible in a suit
2. He's a real charmer
3. He's one tough, yet suave, guy
And those are all just very superficial reasons! In all seriousness, Idris Elba is a fantastic actor and I can see why he's on the shortlist to play the next Bond.
With Daniel Craig being signed on for just one more movie. It looks as if [Spectre](movie:660009) may be his final bow before (hopefully) Elba steps into his shoes.
So, what do you guys think? Do you want to see Idris Elba play the next James Bond? Let me know in the comments section!
