‘My Name’s Elba, Idris Elba': Actor Stirs Up Fans With a James Bond TeaseIdris Elba has responded to a report that he could step in as the next James Bond, posting in a cryptic tweet, “My name’s Elba, Idris Elba.”

You’re just a big tease, aren’t you, Idris?

Fans flew into a frenzy Thursday after the U.K. tabloid The Daily Star reported that director Antoine Fuqua said “Bond” producer Barbara Broccoli thinks it’s time to bring some diversity to the role. However, a representative for Fuqua told TheWrap that the report “is not true. He never had a conversation about this with Barbara.”

Despite the lack of a casting confirmation, Elba took to Twitter and toyed with the possibility.

my name’s Elba, Idris Elba.

And, yes, fans again went cuckoo for the idea, with one posted GIF perfectly summing up how hot he’d be in the role of the super-sexy spy.
