Actor Idris Elba said that it is just a rumour that he will be seen playing James Bond in the upcoming Bond film, according to reports.
Elba has often been suggested as the best non-white actor for the role.
When he was asked whether he wants to play the character in the future he said “I mean, look, I’ve said it a million of times. It’s a great character and it’s an honour to be asked, but it is just a rumour”.
Elba also said that there have been no real conversations regarding him succeeding Daniel Craig as the British spy.
Over the years, the James Bond series has won four Oscars and received 14 additional nominations.
