Actor Idris Elba has said he is no more interested in playing the iconic role of James Bond.

The 45-year-old actor said the reason for his disillusionment is as he believes "no one" wants to see him portray Agent 007, reported DigitalSpy.

"I think not. But you really need to ask the producers. Like I can just (say), 'Hey, I'm gonna play Bond next! No, it's Idris. Hello?' No one wants it," Elba said in an interview with Buzzfeed.

Last month, confirmed on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" that he will return as James Bond in the 25th Bond movie.
