Javier Bardem: Starring Role in Bond Film?

Javier Bardem has been offered a starring role in the next James Bond film!

The 41-year-old actor and new dad was offered the role last week, Deadline reports, right around when Javier was nominated for an Oscar for his work on Biutiful.

Although there’s no word on what role Javier would play, typically, lead male roles in Bond films are villains! Javier played ruthless killer Anton Chigurh back in 2007′s No Country for Old Men.

DO YOU THINK Javier would be a good fit for the new Bond film?

I hope that they set this film in the the U.S. and that they include several famous American actors. They have excluded the U.S. from the film series since Licence To Kill (1989). It would be incredible to see Daniel Craig as James Bond in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Las Vegas settings.

Bardem has been haunting me since No Country For Old Men. I see a picture of him, and I’m shell-shocked. The character he played in that movie is the incarnation of evil. Wonderful performance on his part, awesome directing on Coens’.

It would be interesting to see him in a Bond movie.

He is also in the Terrence Malick movie with Rachel McAdams and
Ben Affleck coming out next year.. He is definitely big enough to play
the Villian in a movie…

I hope he plays the villain in the Bond film,I just want to watch it and think he’s Anton Chigurh getting his punishment from Bond{maybe the only make believe character who could give him his just deserts}
