Idris Elba has sparked fresh speculation that he is in line to be the next James Bond after he posed for a selfie with Daniel Craig at the Golden Globes.
The two actors appeared to be sat at the same table at the ceremony in Beverly Hills, California, and the Yardie director couldn’t resist a little joke.
With his hand on Craig’s shoulder, Elba made a sideways glance at the James Bond star, who was sat slightly behind him. In response, Craig seems to be adopting his best menacing expression.
On his Instagram story, Elba captioned the picture: “Awks…”
He shared the same picture on Twitter, writing: “Er…”
The cheeky picture has reignited rumours that Elba is set to take over from Craig as James Bond, despite ruling it out himself.
Last year Elba told Sky News he couldn’t resist but joke around after finding himself the centre of claims he was the next 007.
Fans compared the new picture to Dr Who, with one saying: “We don’t usually see the former regenerations unless it’s a special.”
But another joked Craig just wanted tickets to Elba’s set at Coachella.
