Javier Bardem talks Bond 23

“They’re changing the whole thing”

Oscar nominee Javier Bardem has yet to officially sign on for a role in Bond 23, but he’s been talking about what he knows – and it all sounds very intriguing.

While talking with the LA Times, he admitted: “I’m a huge fan of the James Bond saga. When I was little, I went watching Mr. Connery doing James Bond with my father.

“Who in the world would think I’d be in one of those movies.”

He then went on to talk about the new Bond film, revealing: “They’re changing the whole thing, the whole dynamic.

“I’d be playing Bond’s nemesis, yes, but it’s not that obvious. Everything is more nuanced. It’s very intriguing.”

Trust Bardem to bring a whole new ball game to the Bond universe. Though the actor’s commitment to the film apparently relies entirely on how the script pans out, he certainly seems excited at the prospect.

From what we’ve heard, whatever director Sam Mendes is brewing behind the scenes, it’s going to be fascinating stuff.

Bond 23 opens 9 November, 2012.

Thrilled? Or chilled? Think the new Bond sounds worth the wait? Drop us a line below...

      I'm expecting this to be the best Bond film since Goldeneye... no pressure or anything

      It's crazy, after 22 films I have never been disappointed. And the fact that Bardem might be in it only sweetens the pot.

      All due respect to joker16, never been disappointed? Did you see License to Kill? By far the worst bond film ever made. That being said, I have enjoyed all of the others. Casino Royale was magnificent, Quantum had its great moments. But pairing Craig with a actor of Bardem's stature, this does make my mouth water. Let's just hope the script is clear and concise, no overheated politics muddling the whole thing up.
