The rumors are back and we’re here for it! A UK publication reported Friday that zaddy Idris Elba is allegedly one of the top contenders for the role of James Bond. While some naysayers can’t contain their racism and hateration, a large crowd of supporters all over the world are in favor of Elba as Bond. For those who need a reminder we thought we’d pull together a little visual reminder on why Idris is the best choice for the role of James Bond.
Elba can literally do anything. He’s an actor, a rapper, former kick boxer and a DJ. You can’t tell us he wouldn’t be an incredible Bond.

Though James Bond is one of the most notorious spies of all time, he’s definitely a looker but belongs to his fiancé, Sabrina Dhowre. Elba has all the appeal we need if he were to play Bond.
