    The new James Bond

    Idris Elba fans, please look away.

    Rumblings are growing that Mad Max: Fury Road star Tom Hardy might be the next James Bond. BoyleSports, an Irish bookmaker site, shows that betters are predicting that Hardy will land the coveted spy role when Daniel Craig decides to step down.

    "The Mad Max actor is now 4/1 from 6/1 to become the new 007 with currently both Idris Elba and Damian Lewis locked together at the head of the betting at 3/1," the site predicts.



    The news comes on the heels of James Bond author Anthony Horowitz saying that Elba was "too street" to play the spy role, prompting heavy backlash. Horowitz quickly issued an apology, saying he was "mortified" to have offended anyone. Elba responded to the whole thing with a simple, funny Instagram post.

    Thegent might've had a chance at the role until the international event at Gulliver's and subsequently the BTS...I seem to remember his silent kill methods with keys and credit cards...I don't think knicker changers are tolerated either...

    The 'James Bond' franchise was bought long ago by Cubby Brocolli- who turned it into pap, much as my oirish grandmother would have done with the synonymous but cute vegetable. It has nothing to do with Ian Fleming any more (or Bond). It has everything to do with shekels. For all I care, they can make the next 'bond' character Angela Merkel.
