Idris Elba thinks he's 'too old' to be next James Bond

Updated: Jul 23, 2016 11:07 IST

Washington D.C, Jul 23 (ANI): If you were waiting to see Idris Elba as the next James Bond, then it's time you to pop your bubble as he has ruled himself out of the 007 race.

In an interview with Good Morning America, the 'Luther' actor dubbed his potential casting as "the wildest rumor in the world," Entertainment Weekly reported.

The 43-year-old British actor said, "I keep saying if it were to happen it would be the will of a nation because there hasn't been any talks between me and the studio about any of that. But everywhere I go people want that to happen, so..."

He jokingly continued: "But if I'm really honest, I think I'm too old for that, man; running around in cars and ladies and martinis - who wants to do that? Sounds terrible."

Earlier, his link with the suave, gun totting agent 007's role led to controversy when the author of James Bond novel 'Trigger Mortis,' Anthony Horowitz, claimed that Elba was "too street" for the part. (ANI)
