Javier Bardem Could be the Next Bond Villain

Now that Bond 23 is officially ago, with Daniel Craig returning as the superspy and director Sam Mendes taking the reigns, the next round of rumor milling will be: who is the bad guy and who is the Bond girl and then who is doing the Bond theme song.

Javier Bardem has been offered a part and the rumor is he’ll be the next Bond villain.  If so, that’s a great casting choice.  Hopefully they don’t ruin it with a lame storyline (not out of the question).  Wouldn’t you love to see Bardem and Craig match wits and trade bon mots?

As an aside — I love the notion of classing up James Bond and making the movies an actors/directors showcase. Hopefully, producers keep this trend going.
