Diddy... P Diddy

Jamie Foxx recently berated Hollywood for not casting a black James Bond. He said something along the lines of "Hollywood needs to get with the times. Bond needs more 'oomph'". So who does Foxx think should play 007? Surprisingly, not himself! He thinks that (get ready) P. Diddy (Sean "PUFFY" Combs) would make a great Bond.
I think we can all agree that this is just a completely absurd proposition.
But it got me thinking... if someone can suggest that a black actor portray an iconic British secret agent, why couldn't a white guy play the role of a traditional black icon--- Shaft!!!
Who would you cast as a white Shaft?

Kevin Federline or Will Ferrel as Shaft makes about as much sense and PissDiddy playing James Bond

I would cast myself as the white shaft, because it's the largest.

I would cast someone totally absurd, just to piss off the black community. Someone like D J Qualls or Screech.

lol, Screech as a secret agent. Hahah that's awesome. While we're on the subject of stupidness, you should all see Johnny English. That's the greatest 007 rip-off in the universe. All hail Rowan Atkinson.

I agree with Jack, P Diddy as Bond would be a total affront to the white community. Suggesting someone like Denzel Washington wouldn't have offended me quite as much, but choosing a "rapper" who can't act to save his life is just and insult.

As far as a white Shaft, how about Ashton Kutcher? I'm sure that wouldn't offend the black community!

What we need to do is split the difference. Instead of a Black Bond or a white shaft we need a mocha colored cross over. Call him James Shaft. I'd suggest Vin Diesel. Joel "I tried to kill batman" Schumaker could direct a movie where "James Shaft" has to infiltrate anti-enviormental terrorists in the pay of a conspiricy between neo-nazi's a large multi-national corporation and the US government.
