Idris Elba as James Bond

Is this a conservative liberal thing?  I don't think it is, nor should it be. 

My only criteria for the Bond franchise is that Bond be...well Bond. It is not a racial thing (frankly I suspect dishonest people on the left are trying to make it so), but a cultural thing. Idris Elba is British, so you avoid that whole Bridget Jones fiasco in casting an American in the role (although given how many British actors come to the USA and adopt American accents, maybe some payback is in order). Idris Elba also has the alpha male gravitas and acting chops to pull off the role in the traditional sense. I hope he does well at it.  

My biggest fear is that in some PC panic, they would cast some woke transgender beta male-feminist passive-aggressive character. That would totally screw up the franchise. A female Bond also messes up the role because male and female people are not mirror images. Nothing wrong with a 00 female agent (that might be interesting playing opposite or with Bond as a co-star), but not as Bond himself.  

So many Bond girls, so little time...

  1. This strikes me in the same way as the all-girl Ghostbusters (for a while, Gillian Anderson was being considered as Jane Bond), trying to hit all the bases.

    Screams PC.

    1. True, but they seriously wanted a girl Bond

    2. Would they have had Gillian Anderson has a lesbian with Bond-ish taste in women?

  2. Bond has been played by Scots, Irishmen, even an Australian . Idris is a London lad - he'd be perfect for the role ( and I'm as un-PC as you can get ! ) .

  3. I'd say Idris Elba would make an acceptable Bond, so long as they cast a white actor for the lead in the sequel to the Black Panther the name of diversity!

  4. I haven't seen TT yet, but the stills from the movie suggest he'd be perfect!

  5. I'll bump it up my "must see" list.

  6. I see no issues with Idris Elba. I want distracted by Jeffrey Wright playing Felix Leiter. I think I would be distracted by a female Jane Bond. The character is James Bond.

    But if someone wants to complain, I believe the new rules are that a person of the proper ethnicity must be given the role.
