Posted by Adam

JAVIER Bardem has confirmed reports that he’ll be playing the villain in the hotly-awaited 23rd James Bond movie.

Speaking to ABC’s Nightline, the actor — who’s married to Penelope Cruz — discussed his fight for human rights issues in Western Sahara. In order to highlight the cause, Javier is making a documentary because he feels doing movies is how he as an actor can help.

“I am very excited, my parents took me to watch the movies, and I saw all of them, and to play that is going to be fun,” Javier told ABC.

“They chose me to play this man, but I cannot give you many details,” he explained.

He did say he’s going to “try to vocalize a lot” so people can understand his accent.

The movie has the rumored title of Skyfall.

Daniel Craig is reported to be returning to the film; young French actress Bérénice Marlohe is rumored to be the next Bond Girl, Naomi Harris is reported to play Moneypenny and Ralph Fiennes is said to be joining the cast.
