Kanye supports Idris being the first black James Bond.
Hip-hop megastar throws his weight behind actor!
Idris Elba already appears to have the support of one of Sony’s top execs to take over from Daniel Craig as the next James Bond.
And now one of the biggest names in music –
– has backed him for the high-profile role too.
“I know Idris a little bit and he is a big talent,” Yeezy told The Sun.
“The movies he has been making are special, and when the role for James Bond comes up it needs to be his. James Bond is a role made for British actors and you won’t find a British actor who has the talent of Idris. To be honest you won’t find many anywhere who have his talent.”
And he went on to wax lyrical about the way the casting would represent an important social change.
“Artists should be visionaries. A black James Bond would be visionary no doubt,” he added.
