Re: "James Bond 23" officially slated for 2012!
No complaints about Bardem. Bond villains have traditionally been cast (with a few exceptions) away from the usual Hollywood casting pool (think the guys who played the last two villains). Bardem fits right in with the added bonus that people have actually heard of him. I'm sure he'll do fine as long as the character is well written, interesting, etc. I keep hoping they reintroduce Blofeld so maybe this will be the film.
