British bookies William Hill have slashed the odds on Idris Elba being named as the next James Bond from 9/2 to 7/4. This is not just a shock, it is also the shortest odds anyone has been to replace Daniel Craig so far. Elba is closely followed by odds of 7/2 for Tom Hardy, 5/1 for James Norton, 6/1 for Jack Huston, 8/1 for Tom Hiddleston, 10/1 for Aiden Turner, 12/1 for Travis Fimmel, 14/1 for Michael Fassbender, 16/1 for Ricky Whittle and 20/1 Henry Cavill.
A black Jame Bond
Some people were appalled by the idea of a black James Bond. Depending on how you want to look at it. Rush Limbaugh for example appeared horrified by the idea. He says, "James Bond is a total concept put together by Ian Fleming. He was white and Scottish. Period. That is who James Bond is," the conservative radio host said in 2014. "But now [they are] suggesting that the next James Bond should be Idris Elba, a black Briton, rather than a white from Scotland. But that's not who James Bond is...I know it's racist to probably point this out."
