    If the plan is to make us forget about "Eat Pray Love," Javier Bardem is doing a fantastic job.

    Bardem, who just last week picked up a Best Actor Oscar nomination for his role in "Biutiful," has been offered a role opposite Daniel Craig im the next 007 film, reported Deadline.

    There are no details as to what the role is, but it's a safe bet that Bardem would be the villain, unless James Bond has something very personal he wants to share with us in the next adventure...

    Bardem proved in 2007's "No Country for Old Men" that he can do pure evil as well as anyone, so this can only be considered good news.
