Anyone know how Stringer Bell likes his martinis?
A report in British tabloid The Daily Star suggests actor Idris Elba, who played business-minded drug kingpin Bell in the acclaimed HBO drama The Wire, could be next in line to play James Bond.
According to the report, Bond series producer Barbara Broccoli told director Antoine Fuqua "it is time" for a non-white actor to take on the role of the British super-spy created by Ian Fleming.
Broccoli said "it will happen eventually," Fuqua told the paper.
Eon Productions, maker of the James Bond films, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Elba's name has long been tossed around as an ideal candidate.
