After 4 James Bond films, Daniel Craig is rumored to be exiting the franchise, and already a few names have been thrown around as his replacements most notably Idris Elba.

HipHollywood sat down with Craig during the films press day in Mexico City to find out if he thinks Elba would be a great Bond. His response? “Definitely Idris is fantastic, he’s a wonderful actor.”

Naomie Harris, who plays Eve Money Penny in Spectre, and also starred alongside Elba in  Mandela: A Long Walk to Freedom, echoed Craig’s sentiments saying: “I think Idris Elba can do anything, and I would pay to see him do anything, he’s a fine actor.”

Elba has said via his social media that he’d love to play the iconic character despite being called “too street” by Anthony Horowitz, author of the James Bond books.  Others being named as possible Craig replacements include Damien Lewis and Henry Cavil.

In the meantime, fans can see Craig in Spectre as he hunts down a secret terrorist organization led by Christoph Waltz. We also spoke with Waltz and David Bautista about going toe to toe with Bond. Check out the video above.

“”t was really fun. It’s weird to say that. But to have all these women in military training together, where we had to do these exercises … it was a great bonding experience with each other.” Portman told us.

And although the women had the opportunity to use real guns, firearms is not something the ladies of Hollywood advocate. “I’m anti gun to be honest,” Rodriguez said. “I say no guns. There’s no reason for people to have guns especially when you have these,” she said while holding up her firsts.

This past week Gina has been very vocal via social media about gun legislation and the idea behind policy and change following the tragic high school massacre an Parkland, Florida.
Annihilation, also starring Oscar Isaac, hits theaters on February 23.
