Idris Elba has been more than a little vocal about James Bond in the past year, something he may have regretted last night (January 6) at the Golden Globes.

The Luther star first fueled speculation last year that he may make the leap from London detective to international spy when he claimed it was time to “do something different” with the Bond role, then posted a selfie with the caption: “My name’s Elba, Idris Elba,” and later kicked off a DJ set by remixing the famous Bond theme.

It all may be fun and games, but not for the current incumbent of the 007 role. Daniel Craig just so happened to be at the Golden Globes last night (January 6), supporting wife Rachel Weisz after she’d been nominated for her performance in The Favourite, and so, coincidentally, was Idris, who was there to present the award for Best Original Song alongside his Cats co-star Taylor Swift.

The outcome? Idris posted the following hilarious photo on his social media accounts, with one simple caption: “Er… awks…..”

No wonder Idris looks so sheepish.

Did this make you chuckle?
