Why Idris Elba should not be the next James Bond

And it is nothing to do with his colour.

Idris Elba is a sparkly eyed, scruffy bugger, and that is his appeal.

Look at him in Luther, not sure he shaved, showered or even changed his clothes and yet he had millions of women, and probably a fair few men, in useless heaps on the floor at the end of each episode.

Look at him in Prometheus, again scruffy.

Now imagine him shaved, showered and in a Saville Row suit.  Not the same is it?

We all know that Daniel Craig is rugged and certainly rocks a pair of blue trunks, but he also suits the clean shaven look.

Pierce Brosnan was just reprising his Remington Steele days, we all knew whilst watching that, that he would end up as Bond one day.

The previous Bonds have all looked like they have fallen out of Anderson & Sheppard's windows, and Idris just does not fill that role.

Who do you think should be the next Bond?

  1. I think a more intellectual Bond - Benedict Cumberbatch or Eddie Redmayne maybe?
