Idris Elba may be fans favourite to play James Bond but the actor feels he is “too old” for the role.

The 43-year-old actor Star Trek Beyond star said it is “the wildest rumour in the world,” and confirmed that he is never actually been in talks for the 007 role.

“If it was to happen it would be the will of the nation because there’s been no talks (between) me and the studio.

“If I’m really honest I think I’m too old for that. I can’t be running around in cars and ladies and martinis, who wants to do that? Sounds terrible,” Elba told Good Morning America’s Michael Strahan.
