“Honestly, it’s a rumor that’s really starting to eat itself,” Idris shared. “If there was ever any chance of me getting Bond, it’s gone.”

He added, “Daniel Craig actually set the rumor off. About four years ago he said Idris Elba would be a great Bond and then it started to creep. I blame Daniel.”

Idris Elba Is Not English Enough to Play James Bond, Roger Moore Says

Idris Elba rocks a red tie while shooting scenes for his hit show Luther on Friday (March 27) in London, England.

Former James Bond actor Roger Moore, who starred in seven Bond movies between 1973 and 1985, recently shared his thoughts on Idris as a possible choice to play the 007 agent in the future.

“A few years ago, I said that Cuba Gooding Jr would make an excellent Bond, but it was a joke!’ Roger shared to Paris Match magazine.

He added, “Although James may have been played by a Scot, a Welshman and an Irishman, I think he should be “English-English”. Nevertheless, it’s an interesting idea, but unrealistic.”

After facing much backlash for his comments, Roger wrote on Twitter, “An interview I gave to Paris Match implies I said something racist about Idris Elba. That is simply untrue. #Lost in translation.”
