"Idris could do it if he was in shape", the director teased.

His name has been in the running for several years to play the most famous secret agent in film - but it looks like Idris Elba may well scoop the role of his career, according to recent reports.

While there's no denying that Elba is a phenomenal actor, his age could be a key factor in the ultimate decision of who takes up the mantle of 007 next.

Once Daniel Craig parks his Aston Martin and sets down his martini glass for good, heartthrob Idris Elba could be the next leading man to take up the role of James Bond if the rumours are to be believed.

Idris Elba has always been suggested for the role of James Bond after Daniel Craig leaves the role, and with recent rumors suggesting it could possibly happen, a new image reveals what he could look like in the role.

However, Elba once insisted that no one is genuinely considering him to play 007.

Director Antoine Fuqua discussed the possibility during a conversation with producer Barbara Broccoli who said "it is time" for a "non-white actor" to play the iconic character, the Daily Star reported.

The author denied this was a coded racist slur and explained: "Idris Elba is a terrific actor, but I can think of other black actors who would do it better". "Could be a woman, could be a black woman, could be a white woman, but I think, that character, everybody would like to see it have - do something different with it, why not?"
