Folks want Idris Elba to be the next James Bond so badly that they are making up lies and setting false rumors in motion.

Last week, U.K. tabloid, The Daily Star, posted a story claiming Antoine Fuqua told James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli that Idris is the perfect guy for the role.

Issa lie, y’all.

Antoine’s rep shut all of the foolishness down, telling the Hollywood Reporter:

He never had a conversation with Barbara about the franchise or about any casting.

Idris took to Twitter to troll folks for a bit by tweeting:

A couple of hours later, he tweeted:


Trust and believe Idris has plenty to keep himself busy.

If Bond is for him…it will happen.
