Maybe it's his turn as Mandela that did not convince me, but I was a bit surprised by the leak. He could make a good Bond. His image, physically, is a bit like Craig, but he's a bit more sophisticated. What do you think?

Dunno. He can deliver on the action, but on the style & the humour I'm not too sure.

Tom Hardy would be my choice........but I think he's a bit too cool to be James Bond

The cat's out of the bag too soon with this leak. Dont be surprised if they pass over Idris now and pick another actor. Has anyone ever turned down Bond?

Tom Hardy would make a perfect Bond. Craig has made Bond rough & ready and relevant agin, and Hardy could take that further.

There is a whole list of actors who turned down Bond roles. Neeson did it because he did not want to do action as a main stay. And now all he does is crappy Taken films.

The original Taken was good. Number two made me laugh. Some movies are so bad they become funny sort of.

Daniel Craig is the best Bond so far, slamdunk. Best Bond movies overall too.

I think Idris will be amazing. Some people judge him by the Mandela film, but i think he could nail and the role. We will all miss Judy though.

Maybe so but you have to ask yourself will Elba take it higher? Bond has a lot of competition and the stakes are huge.

Maybe you're right. The Bond clan does not like its short list leaked before time.

Now Roger Moore said that Elba is not English-English enough.He says It's unrealistic. He does make me laugh. Bond was played by a Scot, and Irishman and a Welshman before. So obviously Roger is talking about Idris Elba's colour. Don't be silly Roger dodger. Not very artful either.
