He definitely has the handsome/brooding thing down.
For anyone who wants to see award-winning British actor Idris Elba play James Bond, here is a tasty piece of video-editing for you to consume (even if you're already overeaten). Vulture made this trailer, cutting it together perfectly to make it look like Idris Elba's stoic, thoughtful eyes will stare daggers into his enemies as James Bond in Spectre. He's played roles in other movies that embody the four major attributes of Bond, so the mashup is quite seamless. Here are the four requirements, displayed prominently in the trailer:
1. Driving cars.
2. Confidently talking to sexy-serious women.
3. Delivering one word lines with layered emotion.
4. Being hot.
Idris Elba would probably like to actually play James Bond, but hopefully this fake trailer will fill the void for the time being. He's a positive dude, so we're sure he'll enjoy it.
