Idris Elba Responds to James Bond Casting Rumors: “Don’t Believe the Hype”

Idris Elba appears to have possibly given his two cents on reports claiming he’s been floated as the next James Bond.

On Sunday (August 12), Elba posted a series of cryptic tweets beginning with a reference to Bond’s famous line with his own name in its place, “my name’s Elba, Idris Elba,” he wrote.

A few hours later he tweeted a photo of the rap group Public Enemy as well as a lyric from one of their songs: “Don’t believe the HYPE….”

The tweets come days after UK publication Daily Star published a story alleging that Bond producer Barbara Broccoli told director Antoine Fuqua it was time to cast a non-white actor in the role. Fuqua representatives, however, refuted the story stating that no such conversation ever took place.
