Who Should Play the First Black James Bond?

Only a handful of actors have had the honor of playing James Bond. And current holder of the title, Daniel Craig, wanted Obama to play the first Black James Bond.

Craig said, "Obama would be the better Bond, because, if he’s true to his word, he’d be willing to quite literally look the enemy in the eye and go toe-to-toe with them."

Unfortunately, Barack Obama has his hands full and won't be able to take on the role, so we gathered up some potential actors for your consideration.

There were reports that Oscar winner Jamie Foxx was eyeing the role, while Rap mogul P. Diddy has been making his own audition tape. Diddy reportedly spent a whopping $750,000 on the production, now that’s dedication! "There is a black president and it's time for there to be a black Bond," he explained.

Hollyscoop caught up with some of your favorite stars to see if we can add more auditions to the roster. Check out their answers below along with our special video below and you tell us who should be the next Black James Bond.

Will Smith: “Listen, there's certain characters that we gotta leave alone.”

Jermaine Dupri: "I've been James Bond," he joked. "They just got on that."

will.i.am: "No, because I don’t want hurt nobody's feelings. I get that role, cause I am international...Who do you think should get it? Me?"

50 Cent: "For the next James Bond Audition? I don’t go to auditions," he joked.

Marlon Wayans: "I think I would look better in a suit, and I would be cooler with the gadgets." He added, "We're going to make him African. He isn’t going to speak English, he's going to be totally hip hop."
