Sony/Screen Gems(NEW YORK) — Idris Elba participated in an “Ask Me Anything” session on Reddit Saturday. In addition to his role in Disney’s remake of The Jungle Book, the No Good Deed actor also discussed the possibility of him becoming the next James Bond.
There has been some buzz on the web about Elba possibly stepping into the 007 role when Daniel Craig decides to leave.
When one Reddit user asked if he’d be interested, Elba answered, “Yes, if it was offered to me, absolutely.”
The 42-year-old actor also cleared up a rumor about him playing the Marvel Comics character Luke Cage in the upcoming Netflix series of the same name. Elba revealed, “I think there’s an actor already signed on for it, fortunately or unfortunately.”
The recent announcement that Elba will voice the part of Shere Khan in Jon Favreau’s upcoming remake of the Disney classic The Jungle Book prompted one fan to ask Elba what his favorite Disney movie was.
“I loved Mary Poppins,” he responded, explaining, “Classic, man, just classic. The songs, the animation, amazing!”
The Jungle Book, also featuring the voices of Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson, is set for a 2015 release.
