Javier Bardem To Make Other Javiers Look Awesome By Proxy By Being The Villain In New James Bond Movie, SKYFALL

Javi here. After all of the nonsense of the MGM bankruptcy, the Sam Mendes-helmed 23rd JAMES BOND movie is starting to take shape with its cast. Daniel Craig is coming back as the rather angsty secret agent, Ralph Fiennes is on board as an unnamed character, and now thanks to ABC by way of, we have confirmation that my second favorite Javier, Javier Bardem, will star as a villain in the next BOND movie, called SKYFALL.

This is great news in terms of exposure for the Spanish actor who, up until now, has been well known within movie nerd circles for his performances in NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, BIUTIFUL, and THE SEA INSIDE. He will be getting more mainstream exposure in movie that doesn't include Julia Roberts playing a shallow and selfish woman. He is a great actor who has shown so much range in the relatively few movies that he has starred in. I remember being so emotionally drained after watching BIUTIFUL, that I had no energy left to review it. Not much else is know about the role itself, but here's the quote from the ABC interview:

"I am very excited, my parents took me to watch the movies, and I saw all of them, so to play that is going to be fun, they chose me to play this man, but I cannot give you many details."
