Idris Elba knows that people won’t stop talking about him as James Bond.

At a Luther screening and Q&A event hosted by Entertainment Weekly at the Roxy Hotel in New York City on Wednesday, the actor brought up the famous spy while discussing a potential Luther film (which he really, really wants to make happen)

“Everyone keeps talking about Bond and all that nonsense … but the truth is, Luther is my Bond,” the actor said

Both projects have similarities, he added — particularly, a main character who “gets themselves in a lot of sh*t.”
