Idris Elba may not be the next James Bond, but he does have a few casting suggestions that are making us scream yaaasss!

In a recent interview, Elba talked about the next Bond film and poised a very valid question. He said, “Are we interested in having a Bond character other than being a male? It could be a woman—could be a black woman, could be a white woman. Do something different with it. Why not?” #Bless.

Back in 2015, rumors circulated about Elba potentially becoming the next (and first African-American) 007. Although the role didn’t pan out for the Luther star, we can only hope the James Bond franchise is taking notes. 

Who run the world? (Bond) girls.
