Kanye West Supports Idris Elba Possibly Becoming The Next James Bond
In comments made to British newspaper The Sun, Kanye West supports the possibility of Idris Elba playing the next James Bond.
"James Bond is a role made for British actors and you won’t find a British actor who has the talent of Idris," said 'Ye. "To be honest you won’t find many anywhere who have his talent...A black Bond would be visionary no doubt.”
Kanye's comments come in the aftermath of a hack on Sony's email system that provided the public with a leaked email from Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal that allegedly said that "Idris should be the next Bond," launching a debate on whether or not Bond, historically played by a Caucasian male, should be played by a Black man. Conservative US commentator Rush Limbaugh said that Elba couldn't play Bond because of his race. Said Limbaugh: "He was white and Scottish, period. That is who James Bond is. I know it’s racist to probably even point this out…We had 50 years of white Bonds because Bond is white. Bond was never black."
In other Kanye news, Kim and 'Ye bought their next door neighbor's house for $2,935,000, in an effort to have some sense of privacy. According to Forbes, the home is "weathered," and is a prime candidate for demolition. Kanye and Kim are likely to use the extra space to add on acreage to their huge estate that includes a pool, outdoor entertaining areas and a vineyard. Maybe Yeezy and Kim are trying to make it harder for James Bond to spy on them.
