Idris Elba Working out


Ever since the leaked Sony pictures emails that suggest that the chairman, Amy Pascal would want Idris Elba to be the next James Bond, people have been talking about the idea of a black James Bond.

Earlier this week, US talk show host Rush Limbaugh criticised the rumours, stating that the original author wrote James Bond as "a white man from Scotland", therefore  the character should not be played by a black actor.

"That's not who James Bond is, and I know it's racist to probably even point this out," he said.

Idris Elba has responded to the rumours, the actor took to his official twitter account to respond.

"Isn't 007 supposed to be handsome? Glad you think I've got a shot! Happy New year people,"
