Javier Bardem is thrilled about the possibility of joining the James Bond franchise as the latest villain - he's been a fan of the superspy since he was a child.
The Spanish actor has confirmed he's in talks to star opposite Daniel Craig in the upcoming 23rd 007 movie, which is due for release in 2012.
Bardem has met with the film's director Sam Mendes to discuss the role, and although he has yet to sign a contract, he reveals he's delighted to be considered for the job.
He tells the Los Angeles Times, "I'm a huge fan of the James Bond saga. When I was little, I went watching Mr. Connery doing James Bond with my father. Who in the world would think I'd be in one of those movies?... (My conversation with Mendes was) very intriguing... They're changing the whole thing, the whole dynamic.
"I'd be playing Bond's nemesis, yes, but it's not that obvious. Everything is more nuanced... But who knows? Maybe I will go back home saying, 'I have the world in my hands.' Evil can be very seductive."
