We're so excited about this confirmation! And it IS a confirmation, coming from the actor himself — Javier Bardem is the next Bond villain!
“I am very excited. My parents took me to watch the movies and I saw all of them. So to play that is going to be fun. They chose me to play this man, but I cannot give you many details.”
As you can see, he couldn't reveal much past him playing the role of a villain, but that's enough for our appetites for now!
Good luck, Javier! Give us a call when you know more! You have out digits!
