Washington: Hollywood actor Idris Elba may have fuelled anticipation of playing the next James Bond.
Elba took to Twitter earlier in the day to post a cryptic tweet hinting towards the same.
His tweet, “my name’s Elba, Idris Elba.” resonates with the famous line from every James Bond movie, ‘My name is Bond, James Bond.”
Deadline reports that rumours of the ‘The Dark Tower’ star playing the next Bond has been on for long, but Eon productions, which funds these movies, has been quiet about it for long.
Keeping the debate alive, Elba had confirmed earlier that no one had approached him for the part.
In the 21st century, Daniel Craig is the one who plays all the roles featuring the fictional British spy. He is even expected to play ‘Bond 25’ which would be his last.
