Looks like both Jamie Foxx and Diddy are interested in playing the historical role.

Current star Daniel Craig recently suggested it could be time for the first black Bond in the wake of Barack Obama’s election as the first African-American president in U.S. history. Asked by U.S. news show Access Hollywood whether he would like to play Bond, he says, “Of course! I’d put a little swing in it. A little hip-hop, you know. Maybe not drinking martinis, but drinking some Hennessey maybe. Bond would drink dark liquor.” And Foxx admits he has already received backing to take on the coveted role. He adds, “I was in London and I had to give an award to Daniel Craig? and I went up and said, ‘Bond. Black Bond.’ And everybody just lost it… Black Bond would be cool.”

At the 2006 MTV Europe Music Awards Diddy also put his bid in for the role. “One day the time will come for a black Bond and hopefully I can audition for it. It’s a dream of mine to play a great role like that.”

Obama’s the president. Beyonce wants to be Wonder Woman, and now the next Bond might just be black. We smell a mutiny.

In the meantime, WHO SHOULD PLAY THE FIRST BLACK BOND?

    Idris Elba…of course…also Chiwetel Ejiofor (talk to me, inside man, american gangster) or Derek Luke….I would never choose P.Doo Doo for the role…not enough class….Jaime Foxx…ehhhh.

  • Roni

    Neither one (Ugh), Blair Underwood puts them both to shame.

  • Boston George

    If you could put Don Cheadle’s acting skills into someone else it would be a go!

  • Hannibal

    KATT WILLIAMS…

  • The Grundle

    You guys know that role is for Will Smith if he wants it.

  • And...

    By the time we’re through labeing everything “Black this and White that” daytime will be for Whites and nighttime will be for Blacks.

    We will soon be able to buy White only pies, boy I tell ya…

    Will we begin labeling & using colored restrooms again?

    Some characters don’t need to be adapted if you ask me. Some things hold no merit or will break a color barrier.

    Just let Brad Pitt play Supafly, Jim Carey as Dolemite, Tom Cruise as Shaft, Tom Hanks as Richard Pryor…

    “I Hate Black Pepper. I hate my gums cause they black. I hate Whoopi Goldberg’s lips. I Hate the back of Forrest Whittaker’s neck, and most of all I hate that black ass Wesley Snipes.”
