Nigerian born actor, David Oyewolo is the first black James Bond

Emmy nominated, Nigerian born British actor, David Oyewolo has been cast as the first black James Bond ever. The talented Osacar nominee beat British actor Idris Elba for the spot.

Oyewolo does not however appear on the screen though as he will be voicing Agent 007 in a new audiobook titled "Trigger Mortis. The audiobook is set to debut September 8th.

The actor revealed he is very honoured ……..
“[I’m] very honored”, Oyelowo said: “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.”

On dealing with people who would hate on him for being the first black man to play a role that is predominantly white,……
“I had to have my agent filter mail ... it was hate mail. It was: ‘How dare you enter a realm that is not yours to enter?’ One slipped through the net … it’s upsetting ... I had letters coming through to the stage door.” He added: “This was over 10 years ago -so you’d hope that wouldn’t be the case now.”
