Idris Elba


After much speculation it was announced this week that Grammy winner Sam Smith will be the artist to take over the latest Bond theme song.

Writing’s On The Wall is to be released later this month. However, there is still plenty of speculation surrounding who will be cast as the next leading man himself.

David Beckham has apparently become a favourite of the public. Since his latest foray into the acting world in pal Guy Ritchie’s latest film, fans have been eager to see him take on the famous 007 role.

There was also much controversy when actor Idris Elba was deemed ‘too street’ by Bond author Anthony Horowitz.

“For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part. It’s not a color issue. I think he is probably a bit too ‘street’ for Bond. Is it a question of being suave? Yeah.”

He later apologised for his remarks and said he was “mortified to have caused offence.” On his own Instagram page Idris posted a screenshot of the article the remark appeared in with the caption: “Always keep smiling!! It takes no energy and never hurts! Learned that from the Street!!”

Now it seems that one pop star fancies herself as the one to step into the secret agent’s shoes.

Posting a selfie on her Instagram page as she flexed in the mirror, Ellie joked she was very excited to reveal that she was the next Bond.


So excited to announce that I am the next James Bond x

The singer is already the face of a Nike campaign, and she has the abs to prove it. Dressed in a sports bra and tiny black shorts (Nike, naturally), the star looks incredibly fit as she shows off her hard earned physique.

Not that we’re all that surprised seeing as she’s been keeping busy all summer long as she performs on the summer festival circuit. However, a performance scheduled for October seems to have caused some issues.

Ellie is supposed to perform at the AFL Grand Final in Melbourne, but organisers for the event have landed themselves in hot water after they booked mostly British acts instead of more local performers.


No he can officially add record breaker to his impressive CV, twice.

The 42-year old actor Idris Elba has become the first ever make to appear solo on the cover of Maxim magazine.

Speaking about the news, editor-in-chief Kate Lanphear said “we’ve never in US Maxim history had a man on the cover solo.”

Previously men have appeared but alongside women so Idris’ cover makes it a first in the magazine’s 20 year history. We’re pretty pleased about this too.

According to the magazine they couldn’t think of anyone else in the world “more badass” than Idris to take the spot.

Describing the actor, musician and race car driver as “complex” and “sophisticated”, editors said “he was really the perfect embodiment of what I think the new Maximman is.”

Underneath the headline ‘Man Up’ the popular TV star is sporting his trademark beard and cuts quite the stylish figure in a black and grey animal print jacket.

'The guy broke the [British] land speed record which hasn't been touched since like 1928. He's sort of a living, breathing superhero,' said the magazine.

In May The Wire actor drove across the Pendine Sands in Wales at 180.361 mph to break the world land speed record. In a Bentley Continental GT, as you do.

He tells the magazine: “I just like the velocity, and I guess I’m slightly addicted to the risk of it.”

While there were plenty of rumours that got everyone's hopes up that he would take on the role spy James Bond, he admitted he doesn't think that will happen. He will however be on our screens in Star Trek Beyond



The gorgeous Idris Elba is coming to Dublin ladies and not just to see the sights, but to show off his DJ skills as well.

Apparently, Idris will be using his mixing skills at Dublin’s Buck’s Townhouse, this Saturday.

You may know Idris for his iconic role on The Wire and more recently, for his famous portrayal of Nelson Mandela.

But Elba will be hitting the DJ decks this weekend and we definitely can’t wait to see him in action.



Naomie Harris looked stunning in green as she posed alongside Idris Elba at the 25th Palm Springs International Film Festival. The pair were at the event for their new movie Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

U2’s Bono, who was friends with the former president, was joined by The Edge as they discussed the movie with Naomie and Idris. We would have loved to have been a fly on the wall for that conversation.

The movie follows the life of the late Nelson Mandela and the struggle for race equality in South Africa. The actress and the actor looked very comfortable as they took part in a Q&A at the cinematic event.

Both stars donned more formal attires on Sunday night for the festival’s Award Gala. Harris’ white lace, floor length gown matched Idris’ black suit down to a tee.

They look like the perfect couple, although we’re not sure Kim Elba would agree with us.
