Inktober Redux 2022 - Day 10 - Idris Elba, 007
Day 10 - whoops, a day late! - “007” - Idris Elba has gone on the record to say that he’d wouldn’t take on the role of Bond now due to several factors, one of them being his age and the commitment needed to tackle the role which could take 10 - 12 years of his life. Having said that, if there was a role that would benefit conversations about diversifying casting, the idea of him being the first Black Bond would be a strong argument for more. While producers figure out who will carry the mantle of 007 after Craig (perhaps a woman?), here’s to the WHAT IF scenario if 15-20 years ago filmmakers reached out to one absolute badass of an actor and cool icons of modern cinema to take on the Walther PPK and tuxedo.
