Idris Elba Responds To James Bond Rumors; Meghan Markle’s Dad Hung Up On Prince Harry

IDRIS ELBA RESPONDS TO JAMES BOND CASTING RUMORS WITH CRYPTIC TWEETS

 

On Sunday, the star posted a series of cryptic tweets in which he poked fun at the idea. The first was a heavily filtered selfie of the top half of his head with the caption, “my name is Elba, Idris Elba.”

Hours later, the star got even more vaguer firs sharing an image of the rap group Public Enemy followed quickly by one of their lyrics, “Don’t Believe The HYPE…”

As previously reported, director Antoine Fuqua discussed the possibility during a conversation with producer Barbara Broccoli who said “it is time” for a “non-white actor” to play the iconic character. Fuqua allegedly said the move “will happen eventually” and Elba is reportedly the first choice to take on the role.

MEGHAN MARKLE’S DAD CLAIMS HE HUNG UP ON PRINCE HARRY DURING CALL ABOUT STAGED PAPARAZZI PHOTO

 

In a new interview with The Mail on Sunday, published on Saturday, the Duchess of Sussex’s 74-year-old father claims that he lied and “hung up” on Meghan’s now-husband after a phone call about his photo scandal.

“Harry told me that I should never go to the press. That it would end in tears. He said, ‘They will eat you alive,’” Thomas says, admitting, “He was right.”

Harry reportedly called Thomas to ask if the reports of him staging photos were true, to which Thomas claims that he lied to the Prince, telling him that he “was being measured for a hoodie.”

After the news broke, Thomas says that the couple called him again while he was recovering from a heart attack and that Harry reportedly told him, “If you had listened to me this would never have happened.”

Thomas then claims he replied, “Maybe it would be better for you guys if I was dead… then you could pretend to be sad,” and hung up on Harry.

“I’m not mad at Harry. I’m not mad at Meghan. I love them. I wish them well,” he said. “But as for the rest of it, f**k it. I’m done.
