James Bond: Who may succeed 007?

Near but not quite a MartiniIdris Elba, according to the Daily Mail, has disqualified himself from becoming the next James Bond.

He decided to do this so that he may work on his other endeavours.
"I'm not going to be James Bond," you say.

Idris has already stated he would not be the next James Bond before the film's premiere, "The Harder They Fall."
He would have been an excellent candidate.

Elba, one of the top 20 highest-grossing actors, is the son of working-class immigrants from Sierra Leone. He has received several honours for his work in television and movies. 

The actor has demonstrated that he can portray a character with a troubled history, as seen by his outstanding performance in "Luther." 

He also possesses a strong martial arts skill set. Shame that he won't be playing 007.
