JAMES BOND: It Sounds Like The Next 007 Could End Up Being Played By A Non-White Actor

There's a pretty obvious desire to see some diversity brought to James Bond's world and now a new report reveals that one of the franchise's producers is finally open to casting a non-white actor for 007.

For years now, fans of the James Bond franchise have lobbied for Idris Elba to be cast as the new 007. Unfortunately, now that he's 45, it seems as if the moment may have passed but that doesn't mean another non-white actor can't take over from Daniel Craig. In fact, a new report claims that longtime producer Barbara Broccoli is finally open to the idea of taking the iconic spy down a different route.

director Antoine Fuqua reveals that he recently spoke to her about casting a non-white lead in the series and claims that Broccoli told him "it is time" for a person of colour to become the new James Bond and said that casting "will happen eventually." Here's where things get a little muddy, though, as many outlets are reporting that Elba is now being eyed to suit up as the next 007.

In reality, Fuqua just praised the actor and said that he has the right qualities to play 007 so I'm not entirely sure how that turned into him being lined up to star as the next James Bond! There's no denying that he would be a great fit, though, and he doesn't look like a 45-year-old man so here's hoping he's at least considered. What do you guys think?
