Roger Moore Doesn’t Think Idris Elba Can Be James Bond Because He Isn’t English Enough?!

We’re shaken and stirred by these comments!!!


Former 007 agent slash actor Roger Moore is known for not being one of the greatest James Bonds in history, but apparently the British actor has a lot of opinions about one actor considered a frontrunner to be the next Bond!

Idris Elba is that actor that Moore mentioned recently, and his statements regarding Elba playing James Bond are a bit unsettling.

Here’s what Moore said in an interview with Paris Match magazine:

“A few years ago, I said that Cuba Gooding Jr. would make an excellent Bond, but it was a joke! Although James may have been played by a Scot, a Welshman and an Irishman, I think he should be ‘English-English.’ Nevertheless, it’s an interesting idea, but unrealistic.”

We have NO idea what Moore means when he thinks Bond should be “English-English” but we don’t like the implications!

Idris is about as English as one gets since he was born in England and never really left there as he climbed his way to superstardom.

There have been a lot of racist backlash coming out since Idris Elba’s name was thrown in the James Bond mix and it’s really getting irksome at this point!

We really, really hope Idris is chosen as the next 007 agent just so all of these haters can watch Idris Elba smash all of their preconceived notions way the hell down!

Mac in the City of Light

Mac’s school trip to Paris turns into an adventure she never imagined.

Fourteen-year-old California girl Mackenzie, known as Mac, goes on a school trip to Paris where she meets up with an old musician friend of her dad’s, Rudee Daroo, who now makes a living as a cab driver. Rudee reveals that some of the greatest monuments in Paris are being either destroyed or stolen and that the city is slowly becoming darker.

Mac finds herself in league with a crew of crazy cabbies and their friends as she tries to right these wrongs. She encounters sinister, shadowy characters who live in the Paris underground, a philosopher gendarme, a gypsy who can dance people into dream states, and gargoyles come to life. From dodging her school group to a heart-stopping encounter atop Notre Dame Cathedral, Mac needs all the resources she can muster to help Paris remain the “City of Light.”

Mac on the Road to Marseille

Mac returns to Paris for another adventure with her taxi-driving friends, this time getting mixed up in a crazy cabbie road race to Marseille with her new driving partner, Blag Lebouef, and the mystery of some missing national art treasures.

Selena Gomez Was Consulted For Justin Bieber’s Comedy Central Roast Selena Gomez Was Consulted For Justin Bieber’s Comedy Central Roast

Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez

"I Want You To Know" Get Funk3d: Listen
Listen to this cute remix of the Selena Gomez and Zedd dance anthem.

Comedian Jeff Ross took some jabs at Selena Gomez during Justin Bieber‘s Comedy Central Roast. “Selena Gomez had sex with [you]… proving Mexicans will do the disgusting jobs Americans just won’t do,” he said.

Turns out, though, when Ross researched Bieber for the TV special, he consulted the Stars Dance star herself. “I ran into her and asked her for advice on roasting the Biebs, and she said, ‘Tell the truth. That always worked for me,’” he says to The Huffington Post.

Ross, who has dubbed himself the Roastmaster General, has previously taken aim for laughs at Charlie Sheen, David Hasselhoff and James Franco. “I don’t have a filter to keep me from thinking of how to take that person on,” he says. “So, I start as soon as I hear the announcement or even when they’re just thinking about that person, I start coming up with jokes in my head.”

That being said, another joke that Ross made during Bieber’s roast was, “Selena Gomez wanted to be here, but she’s dating men now. Is it true you dumped her because she grew a mustache before you?” Clearly, he was “inspired” by his run-in with Bieber’s ex.

Justin Bieber’s Comedy Central Roast airs March 30. Watch a new trailer below.

Calvin Harris Changed His Mind About Taylor Swift After THIS Happened!

Sometimes it pays off to have mutual friends!

Calvin Harris seems to be dating one of the biggest pop stars in the world these days as he and Taylor Swift have been spotted getting super cozy these days.

But Calvin had previously said months ago that Taylor was totally “the opposite” of his “type” so it’s curious that he’s dating Taylor after saying all that.

But the word is that Calvin began to have a change of heart by getting to know Taylor through the Haim sisters who are Taylor’s best friends.

Calvin had recorded a song with the Haim sisters called Pray to God which was released earlier this month and it was around this time that we’re assuming him and Taylor first began hanging out.

And while sources close to Calvin Harris believe he has somewhat fallen for Taylor Swift, he also is aware of the fact that dating such a superstar comes with A LOT of attention, and sources also claim that Calvin Harris has always placed his career above any of his previous relationships.

It will definitely be interesting to watch if these two can stay together despite their celebrity status.

It will be difficult but worth it if they really like-like each other!
