Idris Elba, Daniel Craig Poke Fun at Bond Casting Rumors in New Photo

Idris Elba Daniel Craig James Bond

At last night's Golden Globe Awards, actors Daniel Craig and Idris Elba took a photo together, poking fun at the frequent rumors about Elba following Craig as the next James Bond.

Early this morning, Elba posted the picture on his Twitter, which shows Craig giving him a bit of the stink eye while Elba looks over at him. The caption "Awks..." appears underneath the pair.

Daniel Craig has played James Bond across five films, including the upcoming, still-untitled James Bond 25.

One of the most consistent rumors about who is being considered to be his eventual replacement have centered around Idris Elba becoming the first black actor to portray the character. Elba has told reporters that he is not involved in the film, but he and Craig at least acknowledged the rumors with a bit of a cheeky laugh.

In this meantime, Craig and Elba are having a bit of fun at the expense of the rumor. James Bond 25 is expected to be Craig's final turn as Bond, regardless of who signs up as his replacement.

Cary Joji Fukunaga (True Detective) will direct James Bond 25. Starring Daniel Craig as James Bond, the film is currently scheduled to premiere sometime in 2020.
