As James Bond bosses have started looking for a new star and director for Bond 25, Steven Spielberg believes he should be black and sees Idris Elba as the perfect MI6 agent 007.

With Daniel Craig not having committed to Bond 25 and director Sam Mendes, ruling himself out of a return,  Spielberg’s endorsement of Elba comes amid speculation over who should be the next Bond. The names including James Norton, Aidan Turner and Tom Hiddleston.

Idris Elba, 43,  said overwhelmed on Good Morning America: “It is the wildest rumor in the world, ” adding that there have not been any “talks with me and studios about any of that.”
