Next James Bond: Idris Elba tipped to be next Bond

Bookmaker William Hill has cut the price of Idris Elba becoming the next James Bond after Pierce Brosnan endorsed him to become the next man to be handed a licence to kill.

Elba has gone from 7/4 to 6/4 after Brosnan – the man who played Bond before Daniel Craig – gave his backing in an interview with the Radio Times.

William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Crunchsports.com: “An endorsement from a former Bond will certainly not harm Idris’ chances of bagging himself the most coveted role in cinema and he is our clear favourite.”

Tom Hardy is the 9/2 second favourite to take the role when Craig walks away, while Michael Fassbender is the 13/2 third favourite.
