If that happens, he'd be the first black actor to play the role. 

Variety's chief film critic Owen Gleiberman tells KNX Elba would be a great pick and has a number of James Bond qualities. 

A British tabloid reported that director Antoine Fuqua suggested Elba for the role to a James Bond producer. 

But Fuqua's spokesperson told the Hollywood Reporter the conversation never happened.
