The award winning actor of No Country For Old Men-fame is reportedly being offered a big role in the new James Bond film.
The news comes from Deadline, who are almost always the first and most reliable industry blog to break the news.
Whilst it is not clear which role Bardem will take up – most are suspecting it will be that of the lead villain in Bond 23.
An offer to star in the new James Bond movie was reportedly made by EON Production’s heads, Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli to the Spanish star last week, coinciding with a Best Actor nomination for Bardem.
Deadline reminds fans that the actor is known to take offerings seriously and consider these at great lengths. For instance, he was rumored to have turned down a role in Oliver Stone’s Wall Street sequel.
