Re: "Luther" with Idris Elba

^ Exactly. If Daniel Craig were to retire right now you're still looking at 2 years before the next film, which would make Elba comparable age wise with Dalton/Brosnan when they debuted, but that relies on either Craig wanting to leave now, or the producers wanting him out, and neither seems likely. Even if Craig just did one more film (let alone two) by the time Elba donned a dinner jacket he'd be the oldest Bond debutant since Roger Moore

He's in good shape, and I suspect he won't start to show his age any time soon, but you have to consider longevity in the role, you don't want someone who's only gonna do two films, you want someone who will ideally be 007 for close to a decade.
