David Oyelowo is first black James Bond after landing audiobook role http://t.co/rRoZgjLDTz— The Guardian (@guardian) August 13, 2015
- Oyelowo will be reading the new James Bond audiobook Trigger Mortis (Op note: lol that title is amazing)
- Statement from Oyelowo: I am officially the only person on planet Earth who can legitimately say: ‘I am the new James Bond’ – even saying that name is the cinematic equivalent of doing the ‘to be or not to be’ speech.
- Despite what the tweet says, Oyelowo is not the first black actor to voice Bond. Hugh Quarshie did so in 2012 in the audiobook for Dr. No
- Source rightly notes that Idris Elba is a fan favourite to play the next Bond.
ONTD, who would you pick to play Bond?
