Javier Bardem for Bond 23 villain

Apparently the next movie's villain is to be played by No Country For Old Men star Javier Bardem - http://uk.news.yahoo.com/1/20110131/...d-c60bd6d.html - hopefully with a better hairstyle.

So, his name will be what? Brown? Black? Are the any other colors that are also last names that anyone can think of?

This is very good news, Craig's Bond might finally have a villain worthy of him rather than the overblown henchmen that Le Chiffre and Green were.

Hey, maybe they can get Penelope to play the Bond girl this time.

Wanna bet he's the shadowy head of Quantum itself?

Perhaps, like Mr. White, he stayed seated when Bond was taking pictures at the opera....

Perhaps we could see a reference to From Russia With Love and You Only Live Twice--Bardem is seated, discussing the plot with the standing Mr. White.

Re: Javier Bardem for Bond 23 villain

He's even got the right initials to appear in a Bond movie.

I hope he accepts it, Daniel Craig hasn't really had a baddie who can give him a run for his money in the presence and charisma stakes. Le Chiffre was okay but the last guy was pisspoor. Really, there hasn't been a suitable match of Bond and villain since Brosnan and Bean in Goldeneye. But if Craig and Chigur get it together (ahem), that would knock even Goldeneye's pairing into a cocked bowler hat.

I like this news, a lot.

I just hope that the script is is up to snuff, in order to take advantage of the talent.

Re: Javier Bardem for Bond 23 villain

Excellent news. I think he'll be a great foil for Daniel Craig's James Bond.

Oh I dunno, I liked Toby Stephens myself, he was one of the big plus points of DAD for me.

The trouble with Le Chiffre is that he wasn't really the villain, he was the villain's accountant. And I think its a real shame given how much of a physical presense Mads has (see clash of the Titans the guy's like a giant) that he was relegated to a weasely, asthmatic man in no control of his own destiny who can't even protect himself from a couple of African guerillas.

Green was more of a conventional villain, but really he was just the villain's project manager.

Personally I think Amalric would have made a better Le Chiffre and Mikkelson a better Dominic Green.

In many ways Mr White had more personality than either of them though!

I think I'd read somewhere that they didn't like the feedback they'd got about Quantum and that the next film will not feature them in any way or form.
