“I’m too old for that, man…”
The James Bond rumour mill isn’t slowing, but could it be that Idris Elba has dismissed suggestions that he could be the next person to portray the secret agent?
“Sounds terrible,” he told Good Morning America – but don’t worry, Idris fans. He was only joking around.
When the Luther star was asked to comment about the speculation that he’s already lined up to take on the role of 007, he was keen to reiterate that there’s been no conversations.

Another day.. another Bond
If it was not getting confusing enough to pick a Bond with Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Jamie Bell and even Game of Thrones star Emelia Clarke all wanting the chance to play the iconic 007.
Now another option is being put forward, Archie Panjabi. The British-Asian actress older readers would know from Bend it like Beckham and others as the kick-ass investigator on The Good Wife or even the Rocks sidekick in San Andreas has put herself forward for selection.
After Tweeting a photo of herself outside the 007 production stage she encouraged her fans to push for her to secure the role. And she insists she is deadly serious about wanting the part, saying that the time was now right for an Asian woman to take on the Bond Franchise.
She did also offer her opinion that Tom Hiddleston would be a good choice.
But this was a Tweet he posted last Night
Idris Elba best known in the UK for ‘Luther’ and in the US for ‘Prometheus’ has teamed up with Richard Madden best known in the UK, US and tiny villages in outer Mongolia for Game Of Thrones in a new action movie,Bastille Day.
Madden is a Paris based pickpocket who steals the wrong bag from the wrong person and is then pursued by the CIA in the form of the local field agent, Elba.
It quickly becomes apparent that all is not what it seems and a huge conspiracy is set to unfold.
Our two heroes are thrown together in order to survive and bring down the conspiracy.
