Javier Bardem confirms Bond 23 involvement
Skyfall - 10-10-11

The Spaniard Javier Bardem has had his name associated with the production of the new Bond since January 2011 when Deadline broke the news that Bardrem had been offered a part in the 23rd James Bond film.

Last month Daniel Craig restated that both Bardem and English star Ralph Fiennes were in contention for a role.

Now, in an interview with ABC's Nightline, Bardem let slip that he had as good as landed the role. The majority of the interview quizzes the actor about his involvement in a new documentary, raising awareness for western Sahara's refugee camps, however, the interviewer could not resist asking "about the next villain you are going to play, in James Bond?"

Bardrem responded: "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. They chose me to play this man, but I cannot give you many details."
