Idris Elba has been considered for the role of James Bond, according to Naomie Harris.
The Skyfall Bond Girl - who is set to star with The Wire actor in Mandela: The Long Walk To Freedom - confirmed that he met with movie chiefs to discuss becoming the first black 007 when Daniel Craig stepped down.
She said: "I didn't realise that there was this talk and then I did a film with Idris and he said that he met (Bond producer) Barbara Broccoli and that it does seem like there is a possibility in the future that there could very well be a black James Bond."
"I would have to vote for Idris because I just finished working with him and he's a great guy."
Daniel has now signed up for two more movies, which may scupper Idris;s chance.
The Brit has always played down talk of becoming the next actor to play the iconic spy, and insisted his colour is irrelevant.
Last year he said: "It's a rumour" I just don't want to be the black James Bond. Sean Connery wasn't the Scottish James Bond, and Daniel Craig wasn't the blue-eyed James Bond, so if I played him, I don't want to be called the black James Bond."
But he joked that if he met with studio executives he would impress them with some 007 style stunts.
He said: "I'd not only get in the cab, but I'd take the taxi driver out of the car, hostage, jump out while it was moving, jump onto a pedal bike that was just past the door as I got on it, and then get onto a plane - on the wing - land on top of Sony Studios, slide through the air conditioning, and land in the office.
"I'm never shaken or stirred."
