The SONY email leak continues. And this time, it's something we LIKE.

We have learned an exec was interested in casting the fineness that is Idris Elba as the next James Bond. He would be perfect!

According to the Daily Beast, Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chairman Amy Pascal sent an email to former executive vice president of production for Columbia Pictures Elizabeth Cantillon (who distributes the Bond films) sharing her idea of the British star taking on the “007” role. In an email sent on Jan. 4th (of this year), Amy writes, “Idris should be the next bond.”
