It’s many women’s dream to see Idris Elba become the next James Bond for the 007 flick, and it looks like it’s a Sony executive’s dream as well.

In newly leaked Sony emails, the Daily Beast reports the company’s co-chairman Amy Pascal expresses her interest in casting the British actor in the film.

She tells vice president of production for Columbia Pictures, Elizabeth Cantillon:

“Idris should be the next bond.”

This is happening.

Bradley Cooper has come pretty close to winning an Oscar a few times, and though it hasn’t quite happened yet, it looks like we aren’t the only ones rooting for him.

According to Deadline, Ben Affleck recently spoke out about the actor’s role as Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, and celebrated his portrayal of the role.

Josh Brolin was also heard talking about how important Cooper’s role in American Sniper was, during a screening of his film Inherent Vice. The site reports:

Now, both of them have movies in the Oscar hunt–Affleck having starred in Gone Girl. And yet they were standing up for the strong performance turned in by Cooper, who is at a distinct disadvantage because he is starring on Broadway in The Elephant Man, and got snubbed in both the Golden Globes and SAG nominations to the shock of many.

Brad’s got the support of his peers, obviously. He may be getting that Oscar soon, after all.

OJ Simpson‘s story will portrayed on the series American Crime Story, and the football star’s attorney, Robert Kardashian, has just been cast.

David Schwimmer, formerly known as Ross from Friends, has been cast to play the late attorney, who was able to help prove OJ’s innocence back in the 90’s.

So far, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Marcia Clark have also been casted. We’ll be tuning in.

Kristen Bell is a mommy once again!

The Frozen actress recently welcomed her second baby girl with husband Dax Shepard, and they couldn’t be more excited for the new arrival.

Dax tweeted about the exciting holiday season news:

We can’t wait to see the first pictures of baby Delta Bell!
