David Oyelowo Sends Black Bond Talk Into Overdrive
British actor David Oyelowo sent the black Bond movement into a frenzy after it was announced he would narrate upcoming audiobook "Trigger Mortis."By Christian Bryant | August 13, 2015
The announcement that British actor David Oyelowo will narrate an upcoming 007 audiobook means at least two things: The black Bond movement kind of gets a win, and Oyelowo could be the first black actor to voice arguably the most famous Bond girl — Pussy Galore.
Of course, one of those things seems to be a hotter topic than the other.
Oyelowo will voice Bond, Pussy Galore, new Bond girl Jeopardy Lane and others in the “Trigger Mortis” audiobook — a job the book’s author thinks Oyelowo is suited for. Writer Anthony Horowitz said in a statement, “[Oyelowo] has a brilliant voice and talent for bringing out the nuances of dialogue and characters."
