Dame Judi Dench recently worked with Idris Elba on a big screen adaptation of the musical Cats and must haven been quite impressed with him, since she now shared that he would be great as the new "007".

After playing the MI-6 chief "M" for seven(!) times, the word of Judi Dench certainly carries some weight when it comes to the "James Bond" franchise. The English actress now shared her views on who should be the next leading man of the iconic movie series after Daniel Craig. The handsome Englishman is currently busy filming the 25th installment of the franchise. It will be his 5th and final time playing the British top secret agent.
