Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Javier Bardem has been offered a role in Bond 23 which MGM freshly out of Bankruptcy is pushing hard to put together. Frankly I think this is one of the best casting notes I have heard in a very long time.
Javier Bardem is the new ‘it’ kid in Hollywood being offered just about every major property it seems including the lead role in Stephen Kings The Dark Tower. He also happens to have a child on the way with the hottest spanish actress in Hollywood Penelope Cruz. Javier Bardem is in two words.. a stud!
Javier Bardem has proven that he can play one hell of a creepy character with his portrayal of the Assassin Anton Chigurgh in ‘No Country For Old Men’. If he can manage to channel even a small part of that role into the Bond 23 villain it might be the best James Bond movie yet. Sam Mendes is directing Bond 23 which is set for a November 2012 release.
