Javier Bardem goes blonde for villainous role in James Bond film: awful or hot?

I get it. My fan-fiction about some man-on-man action between Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem isn’t your cup of tea. I was imagining Daniel and Javi together ever since the rumors surfaced of Daniel making out with a dude at a gay bar. And then Javier was cast in the villain role of the new James Bond movie, Skyfall. And my fantasies seemed that much closer to being fulfilled. James Bond, fully loaded, wrestling a scantily-clad Javier Bardem in a pit of… something. Maybe a sun-drenched pool. Maybe they’re putting sunscreen on each other. Ribbing each other down. And then it turns into a wrestling match. And their Speedos slip off.

Anyway, these are new photos from the London set of Skyfall. Daniel and Javier were both photographed in costume. Daniel looks… the same. I’ve always liked his version of Bond – more of street-fighter, more rough-and-tumble. He doesn’t look as buff as usual, but maybe it’s just a bad set of photos.

Really, though, let’s talk about Javier and his BLONDE hair. I hope this is the villain’s “disguise”. I hope that’s a wig. I hope that producers didn’t cast Javier Bardem in the role of a sexy Bond villain only to emasculate him completely by giving him a crappy blonde wig. I really do think/hope it’s a disguise, though. He’s dressed up like a policeman, after all. So… I can add that one to the slash fan-fiction bank. Javier The Cop, handcuffing a shirtless and sweaty Daniel Craig. Ooooh. I just squealed a little.

    Javier’s face looks a little strange here. Almost like it’s been pulled a little taut. Maybe it’s just the hair color?

    I find him unconventionally attractive, but nothing here is doing it for me.

      Maybe it’s just that he doesn’t have his usual facial hair? I like him better dark and bearded.

    ew ew EW

    With the blonde hair, he looks a bit too “put the lotion in the basket” for my taste.

  4. Girl says:

    Emasculating is right. The blonde looks terrible on him. Here’s hoping it is a wig. For a dark haired person to go that light, I always thought the hair had to be stripped of all color then dyed. At least that’s what I’ve been told previously about my own hair. A wig seems like much less trouble.

    I like slash fantasies so keep writing them. I don’t think Javier is at his best as a blonde but I would still hit it.

  6. mln76 says:

    Still not as scary bad as his haircut in No Country for Old Men.

  7. poppy says:

    he makes an awesome creepy weirdo.

  8. Naya says:

    I prefer the bowl cut from “no country for old men” to this one.

  9. Onyx XV says:

    Well, it does succeed at making him look evil! Javier is awesome at playing weirdos.

    On a side note, I have never cared for Daniel Craig as Bond. He’s way too working class, rough around the edges looking for Bond. He’s also, IMHO, not a good looking man. They need to cast someone who looks more refined, and actually handsome. That would be nice. Then I’d start going to Bond movies again.

    I’d still bang him (with a side of Daniel). To be honest my three favorite actors are Javier, Ralph F and Daniel so I may need a private viewing of this movie when it comes out.

    First off – Javier looks like a half dead tranny as a blonde. But, Mr. Craig…I’ll lick your temple vein any day.

  12. Jayna says:

    One night with Javier and one night with Daniel. I can die happy.

    I think here ( like in every other role) looks like a truck driver…WITHOUT the sex appeal that some truck driver may have. Good actor, but i don’t find him attractive at all. Better, much better who could be his twin brother, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, that physically looks a lot like him, but that has style and is not so gross looking.

  14. Vanden says:

    Poor Javier! he looks striking, he’s a talented actor. But sticking him in a bad wig/hairdo is enough to terrify people. In No Country for Old Men i’m still not sure what freaked me out more, Chigurh’s manner and lack of empathy or his bowl head.

    I honestly can’t decide which haircut is more horrible.

  15. harfang says:

    He looks horrid. I don’t appreciate many “ruggedly handsome”-type faces, but he’s a little different. Stop messing up Javier’s face and skintone with bad hair, buttheads!

  16. skuddles says:

    For sure I must see this movie when it comes out!

  17. Amanda says:

    I can’t decide if Javier is ugly-hot or just plain ugly. Daniel Craig on the other hand, sexy!!!

  18. Jonie says:

    I would rather like to see Penelope Cruz and Rachel Weisz to do wrestling!
