Javier Bardem has been cast as a villain in upcoming movie Bond 23.

The Spanish actor joins Dame Judi Dench and Naomie Harris for the next installment of the cult franchise.

Javier, who is known for his roles in Eat Pray Love and No Country For Old Men, will be playing the central baddie in the spy movie.

Directed by British filmmaker Sam Mendes, Harry Potter star Ralph Fiennes is also reportedly confirmed for a role in Bond 23.

The Hollywood star, who played evil wizard Lord Voldemort in the hit franchise, is said to be portraying a “darkly complex” character.

Meanwhile, troubled star Amy Winehouse is said to be in the running to sing the new Bond theme tune.

Bond composer David Arnold originally wanted the singer to perform the theme song for Quantum of Solace, but Amy had to pull out due to her personal issues.

But despite her recent cancellation of gigs, the sould diva is still said to be up against fellow British warbler Adele, who Arnold is also believed to be courting to sing the movie tune.

Bond 23 is scheduled to begin production later this year and is expected to hit cinemas in October 2012. [Source: stuff.co.nz]
