Rush Limbaugh: Idris Elba Should Not Be James Bond ... Hue Is Wrong

WilliamsserRush Limbaugh: Idris Elba Should Not Be James Bond ...

Hue Is Wrong!

12/24/2014 2:19 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF



James Bond
was white, is white and should always be white ... at least according to Rush Limbaugh.

On his radio show Tuesday, Limbaugh was reacting to a story that came from the leaked Sony emails ... saying Idris Elba, star of "Luther" and "The Wire," should take over the iconic part from Daniel Craig.

But Limbaugh feels that Elba (who he describes as "African-English," since Elba is a Brit) is not right for the role because Bond was created as a white guy and should stay that way.

Limbaugh said, "Now Sony is suggesting that the next James Bond should be Idris Elba, a black Briton rather than a white from Scotland. But that's not who James Bond is, and I know it's racist to probably even point this out."



Limbaugh tried turing the tables, asking people what they would think if Barack Obama was played by George Clooney and Kate Hudson were to play Michelle.

Rush has a bunch of other examples you just have to hear.

[TMZ]




When you're forced to use real people as an example for a fictional person, you've already lost the argument. Sit down, Limblab.

He's been played by a bunch of Englishman and an Aussie, so what's to be upset about? The canon has been broken long ago. Plus we already had a black Felix Lighter, and yet live.

Re: Rush Limbaugh: Idris Elba Should Not Be James Bond ... Hue Is Wrong

My only concern is that he's too muscular, but then again so is Daniel Craig and he still did a decent job. Also Elba probably can give Bond a sophisticated touch again, which is the only thing I'm missing from Craig's.

Re: Rush Limbaugh: Idris Elba Should Not Be James Bond ... Hue Is Wrong

im not an expert on james bond, but isnt it a codename used by different people and thats why we saw many actors play it (although i do think they should change the name james bond ffs, other nations should be catching onto that name by now)

so there is no reason to not accept a black guy, its not like when i heard a rumour that they were going to use a black quint in a reboot of jaws and i was very against that (rebooting jaws is bad enough but quint was clearly white)

Re: Rush Limbaugh: Idris Elba Should Not Be James Bond ... Hue Is Wrong

Rush Limbaugh is lttle more than the village idiot. I don't understand why people in the US pay so much attention to whatever he's saying. Besides, Limbaugh himself is not white - he's pink.

That's a fan theory. In the source materials (the books) he's Scottish.

But the point is like george r r Martin said of his own books vs the tv show in a fictional world, it's easy to have multiple realities and people should lighten up.

Re: Rush Limbaugh: Idris Elba Should Not Be James Bond ... Hue Is Wrong

Ripley was also written as a man in the Alien script! Miss Weaver did more than a superb job!!

Thor is now a woman!

Alba and Daniel Craig both at some point in their lives attended The National Youth Theatre in London! Rush needs meds NOW!!

And another thing, Daniel Craig's parents are BOTH of Welsh decent so this racist asshole can have several seats!

In The Avengers this is what Nick Fury looks like in the comics



And in the movies.... Oops! Hello Mr Jackson

A black Jaws? Why not? Can't say I've seen an actor that would fit the role but I'm sure there's someone. Would be good to see the character back.

Re: Rush Limbaugh: Idris Elba Should Not Be James Bond ... Hue Is Wrong

The literary figure James Bond is of half Scottish, half Swiss origin.

One might say that Idris Elba could very well be the result of such a mating, but personally, I think that's pushing it just a little too much.
