Default James Bond = Black Man ?

Just noticed some chatter on the web about the next Bond book - and they were talking about black man playing the roll ...

Not a race baiting question - but trying to think if there is an actor that fits the bill ... Maybe one of those off Broadway guys or something ?

Some talk going around about Idris Elba. He certainly looks like he could play the part.

The last james bond was a bit of a black man, in skyfall, which was written by a portuguese descendant, we see a 007 that is against technology, like blacks are...

Thats what I heard..... http://www.cnn.com/2015/09/01/entert...eat/index.html

Forget that he is black - he is a bit too old now ? But I think he would be good at it ..

Dave Chappell under cover ... Perfect fit

the only reason Sean Connery was a hit, was because of the cars and the woman...

otherwise, the first james bond movies were not all that great,
but fans were fascinated with the cars...

I disagree! I think Connery was an Excellent James Bond!

The worst Bonds IMO are Timothy Dalton and the clown that's the current Bond.

I think Idris would be an excellent choice. He'd need to shift some weight though.

My favorite Bond is Gold Bond.

I will now leave you all alone so that you can Bond with one another.
