It was recently reported that Javier Bardem may end up taking on the villainous role in the upcoming 23rd James Bond movie. This would be an awesome casting decision, Bardem makes for a great villain and I can definitely see him take on James Bond. He's been offered the role, but the actor has yet to tell director Sam Mendes if he's going to do it or not. He's waiting to read the script, but he still definitely seems excited about it.
Bardem discusses his thoughts on his potential Bond role in a recent interview with LA Times.
I’m a huge fan of the James Bond saga. When I was little, I went watching Mr. Connery doing James Bond with my father. Who in the world would think I’d be in one of those movies?
They’re changing the whole thing, the whole dynamic. I’d be playing Bond’s nemesis, yes, but it’s not that obvious. Everything is more nuanced. It’s very intriguing.
But who knows? Maybe I will go back home saying, ‘I have the world in my hands.' Evil can be very seductive.
I really hopes he takes the part. What do you all think about Bardem playing a James Bond villain?
