Late yesterday afternoon it was widely reported that jandsome Spaniard Javier Bardem would play the villain in the next Yames Bond movie, and “Javier Bardem” even became a trending topic on Twitter. Which was news to me, as I was under the impression that we already knew this three months ago. Nonetheless, it did give me the opportunity to post this picture of Bardem enjoying a Daniel Craig popsicle, so all is forgiven. “Jugo de Bond? Delicioso.”
The film is scheduled to announce the beginning of production next month, with American Beauty‘s Sam Mendes on to direct, and Ralph Fiennes “strongly rumored” to co-star. Meanwhile, Fusible.com reported a few days ago that a company Sony uses to register domain names recently registered such names as “Skyfall” and “jamesbondskyfall,” leading to widespread speculation (still unconfirmed) that Bond 23 will be called “Skyfall.”
So I guess if the plan is to give glib critics their easiest headline in years, this should be perfect. Mmm, more like “Skyfail,” am I right? (*thumbs nose, eats Cheetos*). Easiest. Review. Ever.
