Idris Elba Finally Reveals Whether He's Going To Play James Bond

So the Idris Elba James Bond saga has seemingly come to an end… and it’s not fun news. Elba has now basically completely shutdown the rumors that he would be playing the legendary movie character (even though he was the one that stirred the rumors up a bit a few weeks ago!)

He was attending the premiere of his new movie “Yardie”, and he was asked over and over again about playing Bond. He told viewers a simple “no” and then walked away. He then was also featured on a morning talk show and asked again, and he again did not seem interested in talking about. He said, “I don’t want to talk about it, honestly. Let’s leave it.”

With the way he was kind of trolling us a few weeks ago and now downright seems angry every time it gets brought up, it almost seems like maybe he DID have the role and talks fell through? Sucks, because we would’ve loved to see him play the character! We’ll let you know when we find out anything else.
