During the conversation, Broccoli reportedly told Fuqua that "it is time" for a non-white actor to take the lead role, that she was certain it would "happen eventually", and that Elba was the front-runner.
Elba is baffled by the rumours, and insisted that producers have yet to approach him about the role, and it's all up to the "will of the people". Fuqua was promoting a new sound app in London, and revealed to the Daily Star that he had spoken to Bond series producer Barbara Broccoli about the possibility of the next 007 being played by a non-white actor. He claims that she believes "it is time" for a Black Bond, and he also added, "Idris could do it if he was in shape". You need a guy with a physically strong presence.
"Idris Elba is one of the finest men on the planet". Sure, he's a high-ranking fixture of Hollywood - he's the director behind Olympus Has Fallen, The Equalizer, The Equalizer 2, Southpaw, The Magnificent Seven, the Academy Award-winning Training Day, and many others - but he hasn't been involved with a Bond film in any capacity thus far.
In 2014, the "Luther" star was the subject of frenzied speculation that he was the next Bond following the release of hacked Sony Pictures emails in which Elba's name was put forth as an option by one studio executive.
Idris Elba was a massive early favourite back in 2015, but his own denials and so much time passing had bumped him down the list.
"The 'Idris Elba for James Bond" conversation has been rumbling on for years now - always in speculative terms, with lashings of wish fulfillment, skepticism, and no clear indication from Elba himself that he even wants to take on the legendary spy.
The celebration turned violent after 1:00 a.m. on Sunday and that's when police said Jones punched Szabo in the face. When the man allegedly banged on Jones' vehicle , the second-year Wake Forest coach reportedly punched him.
Stokes said he intervened and told Ali and Hale: "Leave it out - you shouldn't be taking the **** because they're gay". Stokes while making fun of the couple flickered the cigarette but at them, that's when Cunningham stepped in.
Everton had an eventful deadline day, making no fewer than four big-name signings, including Bernard, Gomes, Kurt Zouma and Mina . Gomes, meanwhile, had struggled to force his way into Barcelona's side on a regular basis last season.
At the end, I'm pretty sure we have a fantastic football team on the pitch and hopefully I have to make a few decisions. And while Klopp would like that fortune to change he knows there are other factors which are more important.
In Sderot, the Israeli city near the Gaza Strip, a gaping hole could be seen in front of a small, three-storey building. Israelis and Palestinians should unite against the deadly threat of Hamas, said U.S.
Play was scheduled to start at 11:00 BST, but steady rain kept the covers on the pitch and prevented the toss at 10:30. The forecast for the next two days (Saturday and Sunday) is much better and we can expect full 90 overs on both days.
News of the ceremony prompted an immediate response on Twitter, with tweets ranging from "welcome!" to "unfreakingbelievable". It is not infrequently the site of protests, but on Thursday, things were quiet as the first lady's parents came and went.
