Idris Elba Will Play James Bond If It's 'The Will of the Nation'

Idris Elba steps out of BBC Studios after promoting his new movie The Jungle Book on Wednesday (March 23) in London, England.

One question that the 43-year-old actor can’t seem to escape is if he will be playing the role of James Bond in the franchise’s upcoming movie.

“It’s all rumor-ville… I’m not speaking to the James Bond people, and they’re not speaking to me,” Idris told Hello. “If human beings want to know if there’s any connectivity between all of us, the one thing I’ve heard around the world universally is, ‘You’ll be great as James Bond.’”

“So if it was to happen, there you go – the will of the nation,” Idris added.

“She is the protector, the eternal mother,” Lupita said of her character Raksha, a mother wolf. “The word Raksha actually means protection in Hindi. I felt really connected to that, wanting to protect a son that isn’t originally hers but one she’s taken for her own.”

Idris portrays the tiger Shere Khan. “Shere Khan reigns with fear,” Idris said. “He terrorizes everyone he encounters because he comes from a place of fear.”
