As Daniel Craig’s final movie was last year, the search for the next 007 is on.

Producer Barbara Broccoli says Idris Elba is in consideration for the role. More back on forth on this with it being reported last year that he would not be James Bond, though we all really know that he should be.

She said,  “he’s a magnificent actor, and you know, it’s been part of the conversation, but it’s always difficult to have the conversation when you have someone in the seat.”

Idris was asked about the role and he commented, “James Bond is a hugely coveted, iconic, beloved character that takes audiences on this massive escapism journey. Of course, if someone said to me, ‘Do you want to play James Bond?’ I’d be like, ‘Yeah!”

Who would you like to see be the new Bond?
