RE: Can there be a black James Bond?

Exactly PJ… 

If you can have multiple Bonds, why can’t you have a black Bond? The guy who’s up for the role is terrific. He was brilliant in The Wire… and he’s British. If we’re going to be THAT literal, since the first appearance of James Bond was in a novel in 1953, shouldn’t the current Bond be at least 80 years old? Of course not. If we’re setting Bond in a modern context the only qualifications would that he (or SHE!!! JANE BOND!!!) be British. Case closed.
