For a long while, we have imagined Idris Elba replacing Daniel Craig as the next James bond, but we were suprised when that decision was changed by Anthony Horowitz, who in an interview with Daily mail said "Elba was not suave and too street" to play 007
In an interview with the Daily Mail, Horowitz, who has the Alex Rider spy novels to his name as well as numerous TV credits, added that Elba was "a bit too rough to play the part."
"Idris Elba is a terrific actor, but I can think of other black actors who would do it better," he said, suggesting Adrian Lester as an alternative.
"For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part. It's not a colour issue. I think he is probably a bit too 'street' for Bond. Is it a question of being suave? Yeah."
Peeps on social media think otherwise, what do you think?
