Sir Roger Moore, who played James Bond from 1973 to 1985, has made a controversial statement. He considers that future 007-actor must be “whole-English” – but still feel not that Idris Elba, who was born and raised in London, is a realistic candidate. Aftonbladet.se talks about the statement that Moore should have done in the French magazine Paris Match Magazine.
– James has been played by a Scotsman, a Welshman and an Irishman. But I think that the actor should be whole-English, he said.
Information about Elba, best known for his role as Nelson Mandela, would be current as James Bond will include the emails leaked from Sony Pictures, writes Variety.
