Jamie Foxx announced recently that he'd love to be the first black James Bond--if producers decide to change  the pigment of the legendary character. But would he be the best choice? WTF wants you to vote for who should step into 007's Prada shoes and Saville Row suits.

Since the current Bond put it out there a few weeks ago there's been endless speculation about a black Bond. Below is a list of top contenders. Take your pick! Or, come up with one of your own. No write-in's for Will Smith. He's got enough going on. And Denzel is too old!

Idris Elba--He's British and fine.

Djimon Hounsou--He's Afro-European and fine.

Jamie Foxx--He's a great mimic and not hard on the eyes.

Chiwetel Ejofor--He's British but not exactly hunky.

Jimmy Jean-Louis--Haitain brother who sizzles on screen.

Morris Chestnut--Might be able to handle the stunts, but might not be able to carry a picture.

Rick Fox--He's got the looks but he might not be there talentwise yet.

Tristan Wilds--Maybe too young, but let's keep him on the short list.

Coby Bell--He's got that international look.

Terrence Howard--Suave and capable, but can he do the stunts?
