Idris Elba continues to stoke fan excitement over the possibility that he will be the next James Bond. Elba’s latest move: he snagged current James Bond star Daniel Craig for a selfie at the Golden Globes Sunday night.
The pair looked pained, and he captioned it, “Awks…..”
Speculation that Elba could be 007 started in 2014, when a leaked email showed Sony exec Amy Pascal floating the possibility. Since then, he has alternatively denied, avoided and encouraged the rumor, apparently enjoying the game of cat and mouse.
Craig is reportedly giving up the franchise after the next installment.
