Brit actor fuels speculation he'll succeed Daniel Craig as 007.

Yesterday (Aug. 10), we reported that Idris Elba was in the front running to play James Bond.

On Sunday morning (August 12), the actor took to Twitter to post a heavily-filtered selfie along with the caption: "my name's Elba, Idris Elba", which mirrors 007's famous catchphrase: "The name's Bond..."

Elba, 45, made his name in gritty USA television drugs drama "The Wire" and won a Golden Globe for his role as a murder detective in "Luther", before moving to the big screen.

However, consumer spending has remained stubbornly lacklustre, with companies still stingy on wage hikes despite healthy profits. President Donald Trump plans to impose on imports of steel and, possibly, autos and auto parts.

He has been in blockbusters such as "Thor", "Pacific Rim" and "Star Trek", and was nominated for a Golden Globe for playing the title role in "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom". The original story came from United Kingdom tabloid The Daily Star, which claimed that director Antoine Fuqua spoke with James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli about implementing a Black James Bond into the franchise.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, reps from Fuqua's camp reached out to them to reveal that the conversation in question between the director and Broccoli never happened. Fans have been calling for Elba to play Bond for years now, but it isn't looking promising at this point.

Craig will reprise the role of Bond, which he has inhabited since 2005, in the 25th Bond film which will be directed by Danny Boyle.

It is expected to be Craig's final outing as 007, having previously starred in "Casino Royale", "Quantum of Solace", "Skyfall" and "Spectre".
