Blind Items Revealed #1

August 24, 2018

As I previously told you, as much as this foreign born A- list dual threat actor would be great for an iconic role, the producers, no matter how much they try to leak otherwise have insisted they would never cast a person of color in the lead.

Idris Elba/James Bond

An Edwards said...

Ridiculous! Idris is suave and debonair, as Bond should be.

The whole series should be retired anyway.

Shit. I'm all traditional, believe you me, and I know 007is supposed to be white. But, personally, I would love to see Idris in that role. I really think he could pull it off.

LEANNE NORMAN said...

He'd be wasted on Bond he needs his own franchise that's more modern than Bond.

PinkieToad said...

He would be so much better than Tom Hiddleston. Or even that pale white guy they have now.

Sal Salington said...

This is the dumbest of all crusades.

Glad it's not happening.

I think this was a pr blitz by idris elbas team! Coz the next movie has already been delayed, so if they are thinking about casting next bond the movie will come out at the earliest in 5 years! Michael b anthony will be a much better choice than edris elba!

So very tired of the gender/race bent gimmick. "Hey, it's the same old crap we've been churning out for the past 50 years, but now Iconic Character has been replaced by a (gasp) MINORITY!!! OR WOMAN!!! OR WHATEVER!!! And there's stereotype jokes that are somehow not racist/sexist, because the role has been recast with a WOMAN/MINORITY!!! Pls give our gimmick movie money now!!! Why aren't you giving our gimmick movie money and acclaim, you must be racists/misogynists!!! Where is our Oscar/Golden Globe/MONEY??!?"

The man is 50, he is too old.

They directly addressed it in Skyfall. Ralph said to Daniel, field work is a young mans game. It was a minor plot line. Daniel is in very real danger of approaching Roger Moore level of ridiculousness.

Unknown said...

The reason they won't cast Elba or any other black guy as James Bond, is because it just.wouldn't.work.

The same way they couldn't cast 6'5" Vince Vaughn to play 6'6" Michael Jordan in a biopic...

Is Elba qualified/talented enough to play James Bond?

Absolutely, but it still isn't going to happen. James Bond has always been an Englishman, and any deviation from that would suck.

@/Unknown - What was wrong about Roger Moore's Bond?

Amy said...

People don't seem to realise that in the books, Bond was blond. Tall and blond. I do however love Idris Elba. Think he can be very suave. I think they need new blood for Bond. He needs to be sexy yet more charismatic next time.

Unknown said...

Watch a view to a kill then report back.

a beautiful virago named hope said...

I mean...they could bleach Idris's hair....

Fairylights said...

That's their loss then, he'd be fantastic. I haven't seen any of the newer Bond movies, I lost interest about the time they cast Timothy Dalton as Bond.

SteveD said...

Nobody seemed to care that the white guys who played Bond mostly had dark hair, were totally different physical types, and were variously Irish, Scottish, or Welsh. Let's not act like there's a sacred archetype for Bond.

Cee Kay said...

@cat Sean Connery was around 52 when he did Never Say Never Again, and Roger Moore was about 56 when he did View To a Kill. It's BULLSHIT to say that Idris is too old to play Bond.

Hortensia said...

Idris Elba is suave and charismatic, while that Daniel Craig is milk toast.

This is not racism. James Bond has always been a white British actor. If you want to racebend or genderbend an iconic character, that is what fanfic is for. Go wild. Idris is a hot, talented guy and I'd happily watch him in a spy franchise - but his own, original character. Not James Bond.

Adrastia said...

Just make a new character.

DDonna Tarttty said...

The push is on to make Bond black (or a woman) because the masses have rejected SJW spies and the last-ditch effort from the stupid social engineers now running Hollywood is to co-opt Bond himself, since all the "XXX" sequels and "Atomic Blond" were big flops. Same way they ruined "Star Wars" by emasculating the male stars, and "Wrinkle In Time" by cutting out its faith-based roots and turning it into an Oprah-ized "you go Grrrrl!" luciferian shadow-fest.

Idris Elba deserves a franchise that isn't those wretched giant robot motion pictures, and he would be suave and debonair as a spy. Just not James Bond. Can Elba launch a franchise (or Charlize) that doesn't have a fan-base already established for the virtue signaling hypocrites of Hollywood to exploit? Probably not.
