Idris Elba ‘Too Street to Play James Bond’ Backlash Leaves Internet Shaken and Stirred: Wrap Trends (Video)

2 September 2015 12:35 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

New “James Bond” author Anthony Horowitz courted controversy in a recent interview when he said that Idris Elba was “too street” to play the famous spy. “For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part. It’s not a color issue. I think he is probably a bit too ‘street’ for Bond,” the “Trigger Mortis” author said, suggesting that “Hustle” star Adrian Lester would be a better choice. “Is it a question of being suave? Yeah.” Fans of the actor have been calling on the franchise to select Elba as the replacement for Daniel Craig, who has said. »

1 September 2015 7:17 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

New James Bond author Anthony Horowitz probably wishes he could redo a recent interview, during which he said that Idris Elba is “too street” to play the iconic spy. “Idris Elba is a terrific actor, but I can think of other black actors who would do it better,” Horowitz told the Mail Online, and suggested Adrian Lester (“Hustle”) instead. “For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part. It’s not a color issue. I think he is probably a bit too ‘street’ for Bond,” the “Trigger Mortis” author continued. “Is it a question of being suave? »

Idris Elba Too "Street" For James Bond?

1 September 2015 6:37 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Not long ago Ian Fleming's estate handpicked Anthony Horowitz to pen "Trigger Mortis," the next official book in the James Bond literary series. Horowitz has been recently doing interviews about the work, which comes two months ahead of the release of the next Bond film "Spectre," and his comments to The Daily Mail have raised some eyebrows.

Craig's future with the Bond franchise is uncertain for now, and people being people have already begun speculating about who might take over the role in the next few years.

"Luther" star Idris Elba has long been the subject of rumors, the actor himself having already said he's pretty much given up on the possibility. Horowitz however is not a fan of that choice:

"Idris Elba is a terrific actor, but I can think of other black actors who would do it better. For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part. »

New trailer for ITV’s Jekyll & Hyde

30 August 2015 3:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

ITV has released a new trailer for Charlie Higson’s upcoming action fantasy series Jekyll & Hyde, which sees Tom Bateman (Da Vinci’s Demons) leading the cast as Robert Jekyll and his alter-ego Mr. Hyde. Check it out below…

Set in 1930’s London at a time of Hollywood glamour, aerodynamic cars and monster movies, the drama will pay homage to the Stevenson novel, and focus on the young, attractive, troubled hero, Robert Jekyll, the grandson of the original doctor. At the heart of the drama is Robert Jekyll’s quest to discover his real identity, his true family history and the nature of his ‘curse’. Jekyll transforms into Hyde in moments of extreme anger, stress and when his or the lives of others are threatened.

Higson’s Jekyll is a young, sensitive and naïve man of intellect and morality, a well meaning if slightly repressed character who slips between his two personas unwillingly. »

Josh Brolin, Maggie Gyllenhaal, And Olivia Munn Have ‘Three Seconds’

24 June 2015 11:17 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You might not know the name Otto Bathurst, but he's apparently been turning the right heads with his TV work on fare like "Peaky Blinders," "Black Mirror," "Criminal Justice," and "Hustle," because he's lined up a pretty impressive ensemble for his feature film debut. Josh Brolin, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Olivia Munn have joined Luke Evans and David Oyelowo for "Three Seconds." Based on the book by Anders Roslund and Borge Hellstrom, and adapted by Matt Cook ("Triple Nine") and Rowan Joffe ("The American," "Brighton Rock"), the story centers around a man who goes undercover for the FBI, but gets abandoned mid-mission. Here's the book synopsis (obviously, it's not about the Swedish police force anymore):  Piet Hoffman, a top-secret operative for the Swedish police, faces his most dangerous assignment yet: after years spent infiltrating the Polish mafia, he's become a key player in their attempt to »

Preacher pilot: Tom Brooke cast as Fiore

20 May 2015 12:50 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tom Brooke – seen in Sherlock and Game Of Thrones – has landed an angelic role in AMC’s adaptation of the Preacher comic book…

With the pilot episode of Preacher currently shooting, we’re assuming this is news that AMC has known for a while, but has only just chosen to announce. Regardless, it’s still nice to report that Tom Brooke is joining the show.

Mr Brooke is an English actor, who made a big impression as Bill ‘Wiggie’ Wiggins (Sherlock’s drug-loving sidekick, with an eye for his own deductions) in 2014 Sherlock episode His Last Vow.

That was hardly his first rodeo, though, he also played Lothar Frey in season 3 of Game Of Thrones. He’s also appeared in pretty much every British crime-based show going, including Ripper Street, Lewis, Foyle’s War, Hustle and Thieves Like Us. He also appeared in cinematic comedies Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason »

12 actors who could play The Saint in ITV's new series

25 February 2015 5:40 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It's been long in the works, but ITV has now confirmed that it's ordered a pilot for a revival of The Saint.

Set to go into production in 2016, this new take from writers Ed Whitmore (Arthur & George) and Chris Lunt (Prey) promises to bring Simon Templar - a roguish Robin Hood for the modern day - to a whole new audience.

But who could possibly follow in the esteemed footsteps of Sir Roger Moore (and Ian Ogilvy... and, erm, Val Kilmer) in bringing Leslie Charteris's gentleman thief to life? Digital Spy has picked out 12 potentials.

1. James Norton

Last year, Norton delivered two spectacularly disparate performances - as reprehensible Tommy Lee Royce on BBC One's Happy Valley and as 'sexy vicar' Sidney Chambers on ITV's Grantchester. Take a little of Royce's edginess, add a dash of Chambers's charm and you might just have yourself the perfect Saint.

2. Matthew Goode »

Lovejoy remake in the works from Hustle creator Tony Jordan?

17 January 2015 6:41 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

A reboot of BBC antique comedy Lovejoy could be in the works.

Radio Times reports that Tony Jordan, who created Hustle and Life on Mars, is in the early stages of developing the remake.

It's believed that Jordan is using the original Lovejoy novels as source material and that the series, if picked up, is likely to be a co-production with his company Red Planet Pictures.

Lovejoy aired on BBC One for six series between 1986 and 1994. It starred Ian McShane as the swindling antiques dealer.

Downton Abbey's Phyllis Logan appeared as love interest Lady Jane, while Dudley Sutton played Lovejoy's friend Tinker and Chris Jury his assistant Eric Catchpole.

Malcolm Tierney, who died at the age of 75 in 2014, played rival antiques dealer Charlie Gimbert.
