Javier Bardem Shares 007′s Initials But IS instead the Next Bond Villain

Posted by & filed under SFW, The Daily Dose (Entertainment News).

Javier Bardem might share initials in common with super-spy James Bond, but the debonair Oscar-winner will be carrying the burden of another key ingredient in the Broccoli-owned franchise, when #23 begins shooting – Bond Villain!

Entering the villain hall of fame as Anton Chigurh in “No Country for Old Men,” the charismatic Spaniard then reverted to his love-interest label for “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” and “Eat Pray Love,” and fans will be excited to see him cross to the dark side again to take on Daniel Craig for the installment being directed by Sam Mendes (“American Beauty” “Road to Perdition” “Revolutionary Road) and being lensed by “No Country’s” cinematographer, Roger Deakins.

Judi Dench is slated to return as “M,” Naomie Harris is cast as Moneypenny and Ralph Fiennes has also been brought on board.
