IDRIS ELBA IS TOO FOCUSED ON DJ-ING TO PLAY JAMES BOND
Idris Elba is more interested in developing his DJ skills than playing James Bond. The Luther star chatted with Bloomberg.com about his recent gig spinning at a Jaguar party in Berlin and the rumors he is taking over the role of 007.
Idris said, “It’s really just a rumor — and it’s not even my rumor! I appreciate you saying that I’d be a good James Bond, but Daniel Craig is doing a great job with it right now. I love working with music, making people dance.” He added, “I mostly taught myself to DJ, but I did used to lift the speaker boxes for my uncle when he would do weddings. He was the first to really turn me on to it.”
- The 42-year-old has been around the music industry for a while performing under the name Driis. He even worked with Jay-Z on the 2007 album American Gangster.
