James Bond 007 at MI6 Headquarters - Full coverage of Quantum of Solace (2008) the 22nd James Bond movie starring Daniel Craig as 007, news of the next James Bond film (AKA Bond 23) due out in 2011, plus indepth coverage of all 007 movies including Casino Royale, videogames from Activision, Ian Fleming literary series, Young Bond, plus the largest discussion forum in the world.
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."
