Doble O Siete: Javier Bardem Offered Role In New James Bond Movie

bardem_getty_tmi_120.jpgSister site Deadline is reporting that Academy Award-winner Javier Bardem has been offered a "starring role" in the new James Bond movie. Since Daniel Craig is still in the driver's seat of the Aston Martin, chances are that Bardem may be the new baddie for as-yet-untitled movie to be directed by Sam Mendes. Here's hoping that these rumors are true; much like comic book movies, Bond flicks often live or (let) die by their villains -- you have a solid villain, you get Goldfinger. You have a so-so heavy, well, then you're stuck with Octopussy. [Deadline]
