WATCH: Idris Elba shows us he is James Bond material in new workout video

Who doesn’t love Idris Elba? He is the everyman of British acting. From the brilliant TV Detective Luther to shouting a lot in big Hollywood movies like Pacific Rim, his performances are always 100%.

Something else he is putting 100% into recently are his workouts. He recently posted on Instagram the below workout video, showing him extremely beefed up for an upcoming role.

Idris captioned the video:

Training for my next film. Bastille day. Grinding. 

Makes you think… If MGM had enough balls to forsake their weird ‘white man only’ policy (why can’t he just be the most bad-ass Brit who can act?), Elba could make a solid James Bond. At 42 years old he is a whole 4 years younger than the current tenant of the role – Daniel Craig.

Who do you want to be the next Bond when Craig passes the baton? Share your ideas @MovieMasticator. Here are some to start you off!:
