Denzel Washington wants to be the first black James Bond, and I am totally HERE for this! During a Reddit’s Ask Me Anything(AMA), which he participated in as part of the promotional tour for this new film, The Equalizer. AMA allows users to ask stars anything they would like. One user asked Washington a question about joining the most popular movie franchise in history:
“Would you be interested in being the next James Bond?”
To which Washington responded:
“The next James Bond? They better hurry up!” the 59-year-old said. “Yes I would! Who’s doing James Bond now … Daniel Craig!
“Everybody should tweet Denzel is James Bond!” he added. “We start the Denzel is Bond campaign today!”
Denzel was also asked if there was a reason Washington hasn’t hosted Saturday Night Live? Denzel responded:
“That’s a good question!” he responded. “I need to do that! … Call NBC and tell them Denzel needs to host!”
I think Denzel Washington would be a great choice to be the 1st Black James Bond, with Idris Elda and Sean Combs coming in a close 2nd and 3rd. I believe that Denzel would do an awesome job playing James Bond.
Be sure to check out Washington’s new movie, The Equalizer, in the theaters September 26
