A whole bunch of people were upset yesterday after James Bond author, Anthony Horowitz, said in an interview that actor Idris Elba was ‘too street’ to be the next Bond. He has since issued an apology after some people said ‘too street’ was just a thinly veiled way of saying ‘too black’. Horowitz said in his apology that his words we poorly chosen and that colour had nothing to do with it.
Bond fans have been calling for Elba to be the next 007 for ages now, but Horowitz explained that all he meant was that Elba was not suave enough.
I reckon Elba would make a rad Bond. Grumpy Daniel Craig needs a holiday or something.
