007 Author Thinks Idris Elba Is 'Too Street' to Play James Bond

Idris Elba is apparently “too street” to play James Bond, this according to the author of the next 007 novel Anthony Horowitz.

The 42-year-old British actor’s name has been thrown out there as a possible James Bond replacement for Daniel Craig when he passes the baton.

“For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part. It’s not a colour issue. I think he is probably a bit too ‘street’ for Bond. Is it a question of being suave? Yeah,” Anthony told the Daily Mail. “Idris Elba is a terrific actor, but I can think of other black actors who would do it better.”
