Idris Elba Won't Be Playing Bond in Next Film
Idris Elba has squashed the rumors about the possibility of him playing James Bond. 

The actor was asked by Good Morning Britain if he were interested in being the next Bond and he simply replied, "No."

Elba seemed to be a popular choice by fans to take up the reins as the famous spy. 

The upcoming Bond 25 will be Daniel Craig's last film for the franchise, which also just lost its director, Danny Boyle, due to creative differences.
