Idris Elba Has A Thought On Those James Bond Rumors

Published

on

Idris Elba isn’t letting backlash over playing James Bond put him in a funk. Last week, Republican troll Rush Limbaugh had a meltdown over the idea of a Black actor playing James Bond after leaked Sony emails revealed honcho Amy Pascal wanted Elba for the role.

“James Bond is a total concept put together by Ian Fleming. He was white and Scottish. Period,” Limbaugh riled on radio show Tuesday. “That is who James Bond is, was. But now Sony is suggesting that the next James Bond should be Idris Elba, a black Briton, rather than a white from Scotland. But that’s not who James Bond is and I know it’s racist to probably even point this out.”

Elba took to Twitter to respond to all the Bond talk, writing:

“Isn’t 007 supposed to handsome? Glad you think I’ve got a shot! Happy New year people.”

Katt Williams Is Ready For His Comeback: “My Only Goal Is Getting Better”

Katt Williams is ready for his triumphant return!

After a series of arrests and bizarre incidents in 2016 that seemed to overshadow his public persona, Williams told HipHollywood he’s getting back to work and putting his personal issues behind him.

“Remember none of those things have ever been about work,” he said when asked if he hopes his new projects will overshadow his past missteps. “It’s more about having to deal with situations that are purposely thrown in your direction, and so I’ve been successful in the fact that I’m not nearly as good as I’m going to be,” he explained.

But if you’re thinking the 46-year-old comedian is in denial about his issues, he says absolutely not.

“I’m not one of those people that doesn’t recognize he’s stumbled,” he asserts. “I embrace the stumble because I know I’m going to come back faster than before, so my only goal is getting better at all points.”

And with six projects slated for release including the comedy, Father Figure with Owen Wilson and Ed Helms, Williams appears to be back on the right track.

“I’m really in each of these comebacks trying to be a better person than the person that left, and if you liked that person this is just a better version than that because that’s what I’m on.”

You can see Katt dishing more positivity in the exclusive clip below, and be sure to see Father Figures when it hits theaters December 22.
