Idris Elba could be close to James Bond deal. the rumors have been out there for years that Idris Elba might be the James Bond and now it looks like it could coming true. All I know is it’s time for a black James Bond and Idris is the man to play him. He already has the British accent, he looks so good, and he is a A list actor who can actually ACT. It’s time to get this deal done!
