According to 007 producers, there’s a possibility Idris Elba could play the next James Bond!
“No Time to Die” was the final stint for Daniel Craig as James Bond, which Initially started with 2006's Casino Royale and ended in 2021. Now, with the role available for the first time in 15 years, speculations are growing rapidly as to who could be the next James Bond.
Fans have been asking and speculating that Idris Elba will play 007, and according to a new interview, it seems even more likely it could actually become reality.
In a recent interview, Bond producer Barbara Broccoli said that Elba has been discussed as a potential candidate for Craig's replacement. On Deadline's Crew Call podcast, Broccoli said,
“We know Idris, I’m friends with him. He’s a magnificent actor. Elba has been part of the conversation, but it’s always difficult to have a conversation when you have somebody in the seat.
In past interviews, Elba has said that he would assume the role of James Bond if it was extended to him. He told Vanity Fair in 2019,
“James Bond is a hugely coveted, iconic, beloved character, that takes audiences on this massive escapism journey, Of course, if someone said to me, ‘Do you want to play James Bond?,’ I’d be like, ‘Yeah!’ That’s fascinating to me. But it’s not something I’ve expressed, like, ‘Yeah, I wanna be the Black James Bond.’”
If given the part, Elba would make history as the first Black actor to lead a 007 film.
Supernatural star Jensen Ackles recently opened up about his "horrible" experience working with Jessica Alba.
On an episode of Inside of You with Michael Rosenbaum, Ackles said,
"I was the new kid on the block, and I was picked on by the lead," he said, adding that their vibe on set was "the worst kind of bickering a brother and sister could do."
"It wasn't that she didn't like me. She just was like, 'Oh, here's the pretty boy that network brought in for some more window dressing because that's what we all need.'" Jensen added that he chose to "fight fire with fire," Eventually, he and Jessica got along.
However, he did say there were moments where they did get along. When Alba's boyfriend at the time was away, she asked Ackles to keep her company at her house, which he did, platonically.
"I love Jess, which I know kind of contradicts what I just said," he explained. "She was under an immense amount of pressure on that show. She was young, she was in a relationship, and that was … causing some undue stress, I believe."
Alba has opened up about her own experience on the show, telling Marie Claire several years ago that she "felt like [she] was being objectified," and it made her "uncomfortable."
She also noted,
"Everyone formed a strong opinion about me because of how I was marketed. I was supposed to be sexy, this tough action girl. That's what people expected."
