It’s like casting directors just now heard of Javier Bardem….

In addition to being offered the role of Roland Deschain, Bardem has reportedly been offered the part of the new Bond villain.

According to Deadline Hollywood Daily, it’s just an offer, and there’s no word from Bardem’s camp.  He’s kind of busy being a new dad, so I’m sure he’s not in a rush to jump on any big action flick that lands on his desk.

There’s not much more to say, as the other Bond news is all studios jockeying for finance and distribution and what have you.

But Bardem would make a good Bond villain.   I believe he could kick Daniel Craig’s ass, or at least give him a run for his money. Is it possible he might choose this and leave The Dark Tower to someone else?
