WATCH: Idris Elba has a hilarious reaction when James Bond is mentioned in new Omaze video…

February 5th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Idris Elba is doing something very awesome over at Omaze.

He’s offering himself up for a date and it’s all is a very good cause, to help educate young African girls… and that is a great cause and we’ve posted all the details below.

However, in a new video (below) that he posted on his Facebook, Elba quite humourly gets dating advice from a group of kids.

And, when asked who they’d like to go on a date with, one girl replies ‘James Bond’ (around the 3:00 mark) and Elba gives the camera the look you see above.

Is this his way of saying he’s in the running still? Or just a funny nod? Either way, the video is fun, the cause is great and the speculation is strong…

Let us know.

Idris Elba needs a Valentine and he thinks you’re just his type. No, this isn’t a dream. Pinch yourself if you don’t believe us. You (and a guest, if that’s your thing) will join Idris for a candlelit meal at one of his favorite restaurants, where you’ll enjoy delicious conversation and great food. You can talk about anything you want to: movies, music, your deepest desires. Idris is a great listener. He’s also a great talker. He’s pretty much great at everything. I mean, have you seen Luther? We’re just over here pretending not to be bitter. Flights and hotel included.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
