James Bond author says Idris Elba is 'too street' to play 007
The rumor mill has been churning for months now with speculation that Idris Elba will be the next James Bond. But that theory isn’t sitting well with some, including the current 007 author. Anthony Horowitz, who took over the job of writing the James Bond novels from the Ian Fleming estate, is none too pleased that Elba is being considered, although he claims it isn’t “a color issue.”
“I think he is probably too street for Bond,” Horowitz told The Daily Mail. “Is it a question of being suave? Yeah.”
YES IF ONLY HE WAS MORE SUAVE.
