The film marked the first time Pierce Brosnan played James Bond in 1995.
The unearthed clips showed a young Idris giving his opinion on Brosnan before the 49-year-old Luther star rose to fame.
With Idris constantly connected to the role, viewers are thrilled to see a young 23-year-old make his judgment.
When asked about Brosnan, Elba said: “He has the charm and the whole look, you see what I mean?
“And he’s fit, he’s strong, and blah, blah, blah.
“Yeah, he’s fine, he’s fine.”
Fans quickly recognized the actor after about 25 seconds in the footage, which has now gone viral.
One user wrote: “Oh sweet. It’s an actor, author, director, DJ, comedian, barista, kickboxer Idris Elba.”
Another wrote: “I hope he gets the helm next 007. Idris is such an asshole!”
A third simply announced: “Future James Bond”.
Daniel Craig’s replacement has yet to be selected, with Idris at the center of these rumors.
Idris is the front-runner who replaces the British actor, although he has denied any talks.
Earlier, he had addressed rumors, claiming, “I think it’s more about ‘We just want a black guy to play James Bond’ rather than ‘Idris Elba, the actor, plays James Bond.’
“That’s the part I say, ‘Ugh, come on’. ”
George Clooney, meanwhile, ruled out playing 007 but said the Luther star should take over the role, adding, “He’s elegant. He would do a great job. “
Speaking to Mark Wright’s Heart radio show, he said, “I’m turning 60 this year so it’s a little late for the Bond thing.
“Bond should be British too, don’t you think?
“I mean it right. It just feels wrong. “
He said, “That’s what I would have cast, sure, absolutely, but in general, no, I think I shouldn’t be.
“The closest I ever got to a hero like this was Batman, and we’ve seen that develop.”
Aside from Idris, handsome Scot Richard Madden is also eager to take the reins from Craig after impressing the crowd with his performance in Bodyguard.
No Time to Die hits UK theaters on September 30th.
