Idris Elba tops poll to play next 007 agent.
With award season on the horizon and following the latest smash from the Bond franchise (caution: spoiler alert!), a recent poll has revealed that 19% of Brits voted for Elba to play the next Bond, collating more votes than any other star.
The stats from 888poker show that Tom Hardy came a close second, racking up 17% of votes in his favour. Surprisingly, Daniel Craig came in a steady third place. Do Brits want to see Craig make a comeback to the 007 role?
Some 23% of females voted for Idris Elba, more than any other actor or actress, while 20% of males voted for Hardy. Idris also took the top spot among residents in Bristol at 27%, while it was Norwich who wanted Hardy as their next Bond (24%).
