David Oyelowo To Play New James Bond, NOT Idris Elba

    David Oyelowo will play James Bond. Although his performance
    will be heard rather than seen – in an audiobook. The announcement today follows
    long-standing rumours that Idris Elba is in line to replace Daniel Craig when
    the latter’s run playing James Bond on the big screen comes to an end,
    potentially in two movies’ time.
    Oyelowo’s previous roles include Henry VI for the Royal
    Shakespeare Company – which made him the first black actor to play an English
    king in a major Shakespeare production. He also played the MI5 officer Danny
    Hunter in the BBC TV drama Spooks and was acclaimed for his performance as Martin
    Luther King in Selma.
    Oyelowo will play Bond, and other characters, in the
    audiobook version of Trigger Mortis, written by Anthony Horowitz.

    Describing himself as “very honoured”, Oyelowo said: “I am
    officially the only person on planet Earth who can legitimately say: ‘I am the
    new James Bond’ – even saying that name is the cinematic equivalent of doing
    the ‘to be or not to be’ speech.”
