Javier Bardem confirmed that he has been offered the villain role in James Bond 23, although he hasn't committed to the project yet. We reported earlier this week that an offer was out to the Biutiful actor. At the time, it wasn't known what role he was being sought for. Here's what Javier Bardem had to say in a recent interview:

"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. It's very intriguing."

Javier Bardem revealed that he wants to read the screenplay before agreeing to sign on. The actor also said he is a big fan of the 007 franchise:

"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?"

Sam Mendes is directing James Bond 23 from a script by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, and John Logan. Daniel Craig will return as James Bond while Judi Dench will reprise her role as M.
