Idris Elba is now favourite to play the next James Bond as betting gets suspended on who’ll play the character after Daniel Craig signs off, so to speak.
Obviously Elba would be the first black man to play the character, something that will no doubt be talked about should he get the role and inevitably he’ll be asked about during every interview he does.
According to the Mirror, a spokesperson for Paddy Power said: ““A hint from the James Bond producer, some weighty bets and the fact that Idris Elba is one of the coolest men on the planet has forced us to stop taking bets on him for the next James Bond.
“We’re now convinced that he’s going to take over from Daniel Craig following Bond 25. From Hackney with Love.”
