Anthony Horowitz needs to have a serious rethink about whether Idris Elba is ‘too street’ to play James Bond.

The Beasts Of No Nation star is at Buckingham Palace today to receive an OBE -Order of the British Empire- after making the New Year’s Honours List for services to drama.

Naturally when one visits the Queen one does want to look one’s best, and Idris Elba is looking James Bond as fuck according to this tweet he put out earlier today.

Looking proppa too.

As reported by Mashable, the monarchy seems just as excited to have Elba there as he is to have been honoured in the first place.

Just pass him a Martini and have Q install a few gadgets into that beautiful machine behind him and we’d already be halfway to a new 007 film.
