“James Bond is a hugely coveted, iconic, beloved character, that takes audiences on this massive escapism journey – Of course, if someone said to me ‘Do you want to play James Bond?,’ I’d be like, Yeah! That’s fascinating to me. But it’s not something I’ve expressed, like, Yeah, I wanna be the black James Bond.” – Elba for Vanity Fair, on James Bond rumors.
