Denzel Washington is undoubtedly one of the best actors in Hollywood. But can he reign as the first African American to play James Bond?
Denzel participated in Reddit’s “Ask Me Anything” chat on Friday, September 5, to promote his upcoming action flick The Equalizer. During the candid chat the actor was asked if he would be interested in playing James Bond in the popular 007 franchise. Washington excitedly answered with “The next James Bond? Yes I would! Who’s doing James Bond now- Daniel Craig!” He continued with a call to social media saying, “Everybody should tweet Denzel is James Bond! We start the Denzel is Bond campaign today!”
Fans followed Washington’s instructions by starting the hashtag #DenzelIsJamesBond on Twitter.
Aside from Denzel, Idris Elba has also been on the radar to be the first African American Bond but as Daniel Craig is signed on for two more Bond films, we won’t be graced with either Denzel or Idris as Bond any time soon.
