After black Bond, now a black Dr Who?November 7th, 2008 - 4:16 pm ICT by ANI
London, Nov 7 (ANI): After Daniel Craig backed the idea of a black James Bond following Barack Obamas win, BBC bosses are in talks with Hollywood actor Colin Salmon to cast actor Colin Salmon to be the first black Doctor Who.
Colin, who has appeared in Bond flicks earlier as Ms assistant in three 007 flicks, will replace David Tenant in Dr Who.
He made a good impression when he appeared and bosses think the time is right to have the first black Doctor, The Sun quoted BBC spokesman, as saying.
Colin was earlier tipped as the next Bond before it went to Daniel Craig.
Craig, who was himself the target of much criticism for being the first blonde Bond, humored the idea of a black 007 at a press conference before the Italian premier of his latest Bond film, ””Quantum of Solace””.
After Barack Obamas victory I think we might have reached the moment for a coloured 007, he told Agi news agency.
I think the role could easily be played by a black actor, because the character created by Ian Fleming in the Fifties has undergone a great deal of evolution and continues to be updated, Craig added.
