JUICE WITH JEM: G98.7FM Entertainment News
The James Bond franchise will FINALLY be portrayed by a black actor, but it’s not what you think…and it’s not Idris Elba!
Emmy nominated actor David Oyelowo is gearing up to portray secret service agent making him the second black actor to bring the character to life (Hugh Quarshie when he read the audiobook version of Dr No in 2012!)
“I am officially the only person on planet Earth who can legitimately say ‘I am the new James Bond’… even saying that name is the cinematic equivalent of doing the ‘to be or not to be’ speech.”
He’ll be voicing Agent 007 in a new audiobook titled “Trigger Mortis,” set to debut September 8th.
