Idris Elba The Name Will NOT Be Bond

Idris Elba put one of the hottest Hollywood rumors to rest ... he will NOT replace Daniel Craig as James Bond.

Elba was at LAX Friday when he told our photog not once but twice ... Bond is not in his future.  There has been a campaign for Elba to inherit the role ... making his the first black 007.

He'll do just fine without it.
