Javier Bardem is one in demand actor! Bardem has been offered a role in the new (still nameless) James Bond 23, according to Deadline. There is no word on the actual role he has been offered, but it is rumored he will play the villain.
Daniel Craig and Judi Dench are both confirmed to return for the sequel, directed by Sam Mendes. Rumors also say the next film will pick up soon after the Quantum of Solace.
Bardem is also said to have been offered the lead role in Ron Howard's multi-media adaptation of The Dark Tower by Stephen King. That will keep him busy for quite a while if he takes it.
Bardem has been nominated for an Oscar for his role in Biutiful.
