From the looks of it, the world is ready for a fresh face in the Bond series.
Idris Elba has been the public’s longstanding favorite to replace Daniel Craig and be the first black James Bond in franchise history, but apparently A$AP Rocky has another person in mind: Himself.
In an interview with Esquire, Rocky said he’d be good as the next Agent 007. “We need a black James Bond,” he told the mag. “I’d get the job done and I’ll look better than any other Bond that has ever lived. All I need is a six-pack.”
As crazy as it may sound, Rocky may be onto something here. James Bond is known for moving in style, very much like Rocky. From a fashion perspective, very few musicians have the influence Rocky has.
In regards to acting prowess, Rocky has done a great job spreading his wings in 2015. The Harlem native currently stars in Dope, Rick Famuyiwa coming-of-age tale that’s been a runaway hit with critics and fans.
If Rocky can pull a big role or two before they open up the casting for the new Bond, Rocky could become a legitimate candidate for the part.
