  • The Internet may want Idris Elba to play that next James Bond really bad, but the British heartthrobs says he’s not the man for the job.

    Despite the growing rumor, Elba said he will not replace Daniel Craig in the next installment of the multi-million dollar film franchise.

    “It’s a rumor that’s gotten out of control,” he told ITV’s Lorraine. “But that’s all it is. There’s no truth in it whatsoever.”

    In addition to denouncing the reports, the 41-year-old Golden Globe winner said he hates that the casting is so focused on race.

    “I’ve always detested the phrase ‘Black Bond’, I just don’t understand it,” he revealed. “We don’t say ‘White Bond’, we just say ‘Bond’, so it suddenly becomes a Black man and he’s a ‘Black Bond’. So I hate that phrase.”
