(CelebNMusic247 – News) Idris Elba Sets Record Straight on Bond Rumor
We it comes to having Idris Elba taking on the role of Bond, it may sound like a dream come true to see the debonair, distinguished and sophisticated Elba as a handsome spy.
The only problem is, our Best Dressed Man of 2013 has spoken and it seems like our wildest dreams may not come true when it comes to an Idris Bond.
Elba clarifies the rumors and set the record straight saying:
When it comes to the term “Black Bond”, that is not a phrase Idris appreciates or takes kind too. He looks at the statement in a negative light and makes a valid point!
“We don’t say ‘white Bond,’ we just say ‘Bond.’ So it suddenly becomes a black man and he’s a ‘black Bond.’ So I hate that phrase.”
There you have it, from Idris himself…
